Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health featured in NHPBS Documentary: Communities and Consequences II
Communities and Consequences II: Rebalancing New Hampshire’s Human Ecology is a sequel project to 2008’s award-winning Communities and Consequences: The Unbalancing of New Hampshire’s Human Ecology. This timely new film, book, web and community outreach project explores the economic and social realities of workforce shortages in our state - the nation’s second oldest state in terms of median age.
Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) Workforce Readiness Institute is featured in the documentary and highlights how D-H is addressing workforce shortages by creating pathways to health care careers. A recent Workforce Readiness Institute graduate, Jasmin Johnson, shares her experience with the program.
Communities and Consequences II shares stories of how people are working together to find innovative ways to create vibrant and welcoming places for people of all ages and backgrounds, and ensure a thriving future for their communities and the state.
The program airs October 22 at 8 pm on NHPBS. For more information, visit nhpbs.org/communitiesandconsequences.
