What does the Consortium do to meet our mission of "fostering collaboration for healthier communities?"
1. We help make the healthy choice the easy choice:
The choices we make every day, from what we eat to how we treat others to how we take care of ourselves, influence not only our own health but the health of our community. At the La Crosse Medical Health Science Consortium, we believe that by working together as a community, we can be the healthiest county in Wisconsin by 2015. Learn more below about how you can help us in “Making the Healthy Choice Together”

2. We help build a strong, sustainable healthcare workforce:
Making healthy choices is only part of the solution. As our population ages and becomes more diverse, we will need a steady stream of healthcare providers who are culturally-sensitive and have the most current training for us to have the best possible health.
With job shortages, how are we ensuring that students in healthcare will find jobs?
How do we ensure our healthcare workforce is culturally sensitive?
What is the future of our healthcare workforce?
