Nursing assistants, home health aides, and personal care aides provide crucial supports and often lifelines for ill, disabled and elderly individuals and their family members. The COVID-19 pandemic led many of these workers to leave their jobs, resulting in a veritable crisis of care in Minnesota. The Center on Women, Gender and Public Policy is pleased to present a new research report that helps to understand why these workers have exited, and what can be done to bring them back. Please join us for a virtual discussion of the report’s findings and recommendations.

Featured Speakers:

Dr. Janette Dill, Associate Professor, School of Public Health, UMN (report co-author)
Minnesota State Senator Jim Abeler (MN 35)
Minnesota State Senator, John Hoffman (MN 36)
Jamie Gulley, President SEIU Healthcare Minnesota

Moderated by:
