Cosponsor the PATH Act and Address the Health Workforce Shortage

Our health care system is rapidly approaching a workforce crisis. The U.S. population as a whole and the U.S. population over 65 are both projected to increase substantially in the coming years, which means that more people will be reliant on health services
than ever before. At the same time, the nation’s health workforce is shrinking, as health care professionals are retiring in greater numbers than new workers are entering the profession. The Association of Schools of Public Health predicts that by 2020, the
United States will have a shortage of up to 250,000 public health workers. By 2024, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that America will have over 1 million registered nurse job openings due to growth and replacement needs. Similar trends are projected
for other health professions, with shortages anticipated in the disciplines of neurology (about 1,000 by 2025), geriatric (nearly 27,000 by 2025), mental and behavioral health, primary care (up to 43,100 by 2030), and community and allied health.
