2023 Congress on Healthcare Leadership

Thank you for an incredible 2023 Congress, 5,000 attended and was the largest Congress to date! Most importantly it provided educational and networking opportunities enhancing both professional and personal skills. University of FL, University of North FL, and University of South FL, had alumni receptions and for the first time at Congress, all four Florida Chapters had a meet up Monday evening. Lastly, 23 members from North & West Florida chapters were recognized for attaining their Fellow status. Check out the 2023 Congress Highlights video.
