NY DSRIP funds 25 Performing Provider Systems (PPS) located throughout the state. This webinar provides an overview of the New York DSRIP program and features presentations from two PPSs on urban and rural health workforce strategies, including a registered apprenticeship program for certified nursing assistants and long-term approaches for developing the healthcare pipeline.
