The Alive! Maryland Needs Assessment

Alive! Maryland, an initiative of the Maryland Department of Health and HealthHIV, is conducting this brief online survey (15 minutes) with individuals who work in the healthcare field in Maryland.  This includes anyone who works in the infectious disease and primary care fields, such as health care providers, behavioral health providers, ​​​​​​​​​​​executive staff, medical staff, administrators, office staff, etc.

Your vital insight will help inform the design, development, and delivery of competency-based curricula to strengthen the technical capacity of Maryland's infectious disease and primary care workforce.  All training, capacity building offerings, and CEUs will be free of charge to Maryland-based participants.  Thank you for your participation!
