AWC is here to educate, train, and build our Yuma healthcare workforce.”

Cinthia Alvarez, AWC Director of Nursing, added, “The healthcare job fair emerged to provide an opportunity for healthcare students to explore employment options in the area of healthcare they are pursuing. We hosted the first healthcare job fair last year, and students were so excited to learn about the different opportunities within our community. Our community needs more healthcare workers in the workforce. This job fair will help students in healthcare programs and community members network with local agencies so they can select the best pathway in healthcare.”
