Message from the President
Dear ACHE/SFHEF Members & Colleagues:
I think it’s fair to conclude that the first quarter of 2019 has been very busy for the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF). So many members of the SFHEF Board of Directors and committees have contributed countless hours to ensure each educational and networking event has been focused, effective and well-attended with interesting presentations and great venues. Kudos to them all.
In particular, our 17th Annual Case Competition held in April was a notable achievement. This year 7 teams totaling 29 students from undergraduate and graduate health management and administrative programs from 5 South Florida universities (all members of ACHE’s Higher Education Network) participated. Student teams partner with liaisons and mentors, all executives from various healthcare organizations. First place winners include the FIU Healthcare MBA program and in the undergraduate division, the University of Miami Health Management and Policy program.
Other extremely well-attended education events thus far include “Improving Physician Satisfaction and Reducing Burnout” in February; “Sustaining a Financially Vibrant Healthcare Organization” in March; “Strategically Mapping Your Early Career Development in Healthcare” in April; and May’s “Legalized Possession and Use of Cannabis in Healthcare: The Legal & Ethical Dilemma.”
And looking ahead to June, we’ll be attending the South Florida Hospital & Healthcare Association’s 13th Annual Healthcare Summit: INNOVATIONS & MARKET DISRUPTORS at the Signature Grand in Davie.
Don’t miss out on our 2019 forthcoming events. As I said back in January, let’s all become part of the conversation and let’s connect …
Charles Felix, 2019 SFHEF President
