The Institute of Medicine of Chicago is pleased to host The Intersection of Education and Community Engagement with Rosalind Franklin University. This is a four-session series addressing interprofessional education, pathways to health careers, the intersectionality of education and community engagement with in-depth research, and the pursuit of achieving health equity.  Over 20 speakers are involved in the full series. 

Achieving educational equity is a key driver of advancing health equity. Through education, one achieves financial security, health literacy, and improved living conditions.   The U.S. educational system is not yet optimized to maximize student access and progression.  This is even more true for students who are from economically disadvantaged families and are first generation college bound. Institutions of higher education have the opportunity and responsibility to lead community partnership networks that support longitudinal, integrated, educational pathways to successful health profession careers.

Learning Objectives

By attending to this session, you will:

·       Be able to share how community commitment, direction, and alignment is solving Lake County’s nursing workforce needs and apply it to your workplace development 

·       Explore an innovative longitudinal educational pathway to enhance the preparation and successful progression of learners into health profession careers

·       Recognize the challenges in implementation of educational pathways and apply its lessons learned
