As Senior Program Manager, Dr. Martiniano is the lead on a number of CHWS projects dealing with federal shortage designations and the healthcare workforce, including the Center’s Health Careers website, the annual report on New York’s healthcare workforce, the New York State Health Workforce Planning Data Guide, the development of profession-specific surveys, and data analysis on various healthcare professions, including understanding Medicaid access and utilization.

The foundation of the Health Workforce Collaborative is based on the values of democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of its founders, the Collaborative upholds the ethical values of honesty, transparency, social responsibility and caring for others.
