The Upward Swing of Upskilling:
Futuro Health’s Reskill & Upskill Programs Serve Critical Needs

When Larry Good’s wife, Rhonda, suffered septic shock from an E. coli infection and became a quadriplegic, the pair saw dozens of specialists, juggled a litany of medications, and struggled with significant communication gaps.

“There was no one to talk to in the medical community who would help us and advise us on what's the right thing to do next, and because I had to make some decisions without important input and context from medical professionals, we ended up making some really critical errors,” said Larry.

For people like Larry and Rhona, an advocate serving in the care coordinator role - also referred to as a patient navigator - can make all the difference. Futuro Health is working to meet the needs of families like the Goods with its Care Coordinator Program and other upskilling offerings, including an Advanced Telehealth Coordinator program and more.

Episode #22: State Innovations to Meet Unique Labor Market Challenges

The nation’s governors have their hands full navigating an uneven economic recovery and turbulent labor market.  Fortunately, they can draw on the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices to help guide their decision making. “Governors are focused on getting people safely back to work and filling jobs that are open right now and looking for ways to get people quickly skilled up for new jobs if that's what they need. They're also looking at how they can build on existing efforts to develop career pathways that lead to good jobs in the longer term,” says Rachael Stephens, director of the Center’s Workforce Development and Economic Policy Program.
