The Program on Health Workforce Research and Policy invites you to attend our final seminar of the year with David Garr, Executive Director of the South Carolina AHEC and Linda Lacey, Director of the Office for Healthcare Workforce Analysis and Planning for the South Carolina AHEC. David Garr, MD, and Linda Lacey, MA, will give a seminar entitled, “Driving Policy With Data – Or Not“, from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. in the DeFriese Conference Room (Room 150) at the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. This seminar is part of the Program on Health Workforce Policy and Research’s Seminar Series.
Dr. Garr will discuss the role that data was intended to play in the development of a community health worker program in the South Carolina Medicaid office, and Ms. Lacey will discuss the Graduate Medical Education (GME) task force in South Carolina and how data played a role in that process.
