A group of individuals and agencies working on issues related to the health care workforce got together for a networking breakfast on November 22 at City Hall. Dr. Kimmel spoke on the potential for the immigrant workforce to make a positive contribution to the economy and help address workforce shortages. She also addressed the current barriers for the skilled immigrant workforce in Alaska.
