Healthcare: An Industry of Opportunity

The Bureau of Labor Statistics has forecasted that healthcare career opportunities in the United States will soar through 2028, with 1.9 million new jobs.

It’s no surprise – Americans are living longer while becoming more sedentary, and thus, sicker than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic has also illuminated health inequalities and the critical need for access to healthcare.
