The $20 million MoHealthWINs program closed in 2015, having trained more than 4,000 Missourians. The program focused on careers in growing health care occupations, while developing innovative solutions to current and future workforce needs in the health services/sciences industry.
Administered through the Missouri Community College Association, this program was made possible by a federal grant, and vital support from our employer partners and college/workforce partners.
MoHealthWINs offered very low-cost training in a high-demand, high-growth industry from one of Missouri’s premier training institutions; personal assistance along the way from trained, professional Career Coaches and other helpful college staff, and powerful certifications like the National Career Readiness Certificate to boost employability and job competitiveness.
