San Diego is an epicenter for healthcare and the life sciences industry, and the need for jobs in these fields is rapidly expanding. It’s estimated that 1 in 10 jobs in San Diego County are in the health industry – a number that only continues to grow each year, according to a recent report from the San Diego Workforce Partnership. The city is home to more than 1,000 life sciences companies, and jobs in the field pay well and are also poised to grow in the years ahead. Several major players in healthcare and biotech will share their perspectives on the STEM skills necessary to create a strong area workforce and ensure no high-need jobs go unfilled.
