“We believe in the Career Technical Education Foundation and the work it does to help educate and train our community’s future workforce, including those in health care. That’s why Kaiser Permanente provided funding from the beginning and continues to support them today. We’re proud to partner with CTE and encourage work-based learning and career development for students in our communities.”




Judy Coffey, RN, Sr. VP and Area Manager, Marin-Sonoma, Kaiser Permanente
