About Us

Welcome to the Recruitment and Retention Activities (RRA) Initiative website. As part of a comprehensive effort to improve health outcomes in underserved areas, the RRA Initiative has developed this website to serve as a useful portal that will allow you to access the vital information that you need to help build healthier communities in our state. All of these resources are downloadable and available for use at your National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Site.

In addition to a comprehensive overview of our Retention Plan, we have also provided a Site Tool Kit for NHSC Sites and Providers throughout the state of Connecticut. By understanding that health professional shortages represent a problem with many explanations, we have also included information to assist Sites in working to develop a Mentor Program across the NHSC network. Additionally, we have compiled a database of links and resources for providers’ families in our family guide that is searchable by zip code for their convenience.

We hope that you find these materials to be useful throughout your recruitment and retention efforts of NHSC providers.
