Health care impacts nearly every person in the United States. From having a prescription filled to choosing a long-term care facility for an aging parent, we all experience a need for health care frequently throughout our daily lives. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, U.S. families spend about 6% of their earnings on health care.
Also according to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment in the health care industry is expected to increase by 15% by 2029. In fact, many of the fastest growing occupations in America exist in the health care field. ACC Continuing Education/Workforce Development opens the door to allow you the opportunity to enter this dynamic and growing career field.
