HFMA Florida’s First Early Careerist Event - Huge Success!
On Tuesday, October 18, 2016, the HFMA FL Early Careerist Committee hosted their first networking event and panel discussion targeting Early Careerists from local universities and healthcare systems.
C-Suite leaders from BayCare Health System, Heart of Florida Medical Center (CHS), HCA, and Orlando Health came together to discuss top trends in healthcare and how early careerists can best position themselves to make an impact in the industry.
The venue, Top Golf, has been recognized for its innovative business model and wide appeal to young people. It has been featured in Forbes and Inc. as the “millennial whisperer” making it the perfect venue for our first networking event.
Following the panel, attendees enjoyed food and beverages, networking, and golf. The mentorship started almost immediately as seen in the photos below. President of the HFMA FL Chapter, Lisa Mathews, and Director of Membership, Dan Phippen, made themselves available to discuss the value of HFMA, to encourage networking, and to learn more about the goals and aspirations of these young people.
The event was a success thanks to the dedicated members of the Early Careerist committee: Chair, Brad Goodwin; Co-Chair, Joe Dresevic; University Liaison’s, Ashley MacKendrick; Social Media Chair, Brian McNally; and Jake Schooler.
