One of the most well-known academic, medical, and research complexes is the Longwood Medical and Academic Area (LMA) in Boston, Massachusetts. However, in the case of Boston's LMA, the local community development corporation (CDC), Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Development Corporation (JPNDC), and its partners were able to form a public-private partnership with LMA institutions, government entities, and nonprofit institutions to create a health care workforce development program aimed specifically at increasing low-skilled, economically disadvantaged residents human capital. The Boston Health Care Consortium provided the first real opportunity for diverse health care-related organizations and professionals from the public, not-for-profit, and private sectors to come together to express their ideas, share information, and develop strategies to address the health care workforce employment demands and challenges. The Training Institute's primary goal was to provide local Boston neighborhood residents and current entry-level employees with skill training, education, and career support programs in the health care and research sectors.
