“A Call to Leadership” is an educational workshop especially for direct care professionals. Direct care Professionals will explore ways to become a leader both within and outside their workplace and consider how to use their natural leadership skills to be role models for their profession.

The Iowa CareGivers Association (ICA) exists to ensure that all Iowans receive good care and support when and where they need it. ICA does that by serving the needs of those who provide most of this care and support…direct care professionals. The ICA Direct Care Professional Leadership Program is made possible by a contract with the Iowa Department of Public Health.
