Join the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association with us on April 13, 2016 for a free webinar entitled Creating a Health Benefits Package for Recruiting and Retention.

Our healthcare program, Nonstop Wellness, uses partially self-funded insurance to provide improved benefits at a reduced cost for both nonprofits and their employees. The National Association of Community Health Centers will also take part in the webinar, providing background on the specific challenges health centers encounter when it comes to staffing.
