This Health Career Pathway creates a regional response to significant allied health professional staffing and quality improvement needs for those delivering care to Contra Costa County residents most at-risk for poor health. The terms of this MOU is to be effective from June 25, 2019 through December 31, 2019.

This MOU will allow for student fee subsidy funds anticipated to be up to $30,000.00, to be paid to MDAE by Opportunity Junction, from John Muir Community Health grant funds and skilled nursing facility contribution funds provided to Opportunity Junction.
