Work Attributes Toward Careers in Health 

The WATCH Project provides a variety of academic and social support services to income-eligible individuals to enter or move up in a high-priority health care career. Meeting local health care industry needs, the program increases skills, provides critical services and moves participants toward self-sufficiency.
