The program is part of the three systems Bridge Initiative Chicago and is focused on reaching people who may never have considered healthcare but would like to know more. Healthcare Forward has designed a free, six-hour course (two three-hour sessions, both virtual and in-person) that will “fast track” participants to a potential job in healthcare.
