Health Workforce New York (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates the http://www.hwapps.org website (the “Service”).
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information when you use our Service.
Health Workforce Apps (HWapps) is an online collaborative space for growing and supporting the health workforce. By creating an account, you are joining a community of like-minded peers in which you can interact with. Students, mentors, professionals, teachers, colleagues, employers and more can all communicate on the platform to encourage and guide one another on the appropriate career path. An account gives you access to all the HWapps features. Furthermore, by creating a profile, you offer a personal space for building an online presence while making it easier for others to connect with you. Members can upload profile pictures, edit contact information, and build personal spaces highlighting community activity, including groups joined, connections made, and public contributions.
