Welcome Trudy Winslow

May 1, 2015

The North Eastern Montana Area Health Education Center (NE MT AHEC) is happy to introduce the newest member of our team, Trudy Winslow. Trudy is the Montana HealthCARE Coordinator of the TAACCCT – MT HealthCARE Grant.
This grant will focus on retraining widely dispersed skilled but un-credentialed rural workers, veterans, and other unemployed persons in the high demand, high skill area of healthcare. It will employ strategies to increase access to nursing and allied health programs; reach new adult learners; use distance technology to serve adults across a population-sparse state; increase credential completion and placement into the workforce, including common curricula and pathways, technology enabled learning and support, distributed student supports, prior learning assessment, and employer-based clinical opportunities. This initiative, MT HealthCARE, will bridge skills gap by connecting job seekers with training opportunities, ensuring their academic success and credential attainment, ultimately leading to gainful employment in the high-demand, high-paying healthcare industry.
Trudy was born and raised in Miles City, but moved to Helena in 1991 where she lived for 20 years. She worked primarily in the workers’ compensation field; first as an employment consultant and placement specialist in the private rehabilitation industry, and later as a contracting/education specialist with a large managed care organization. She moved back to Miles City in 2011 to be closer to family.
While the pace is a bit slower on the eastern side of the state, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, golfing, and volunteering/fundraising for the Custer County Community Table.
Trudy will be traveling to educate and recruit based on the grant criteria.
