Learning events must be conducted in Wisconsin, include an in-person learning component, and aim to build capacity, knowledge, skills or networks among primarily Wisconsin-based health workforce participants.
Learning events should align with AHW’s Education and Workforce Development pathway, which aims to transform the landscape of the health research, health care, and community and public health workforce by supporting efforts that develop and grow a workforce that is poised to meet the diverse and evolving needs of Wisconsin residents now and for generations to come.

Learning events must incorporate an in-person learning component with participants and be held in the state of Wisconsin. Funds may not be used to support events that are virtual-only, unless otherwise approved by AHW.
