Cincinnati Campus Hosts Health Services Association Meeting
Jan 27, 2014
The Cincinnati Campus recently hosted a meeting of the Ohio River Valley Chapter of the National Association of Health Services Executives. The association works to promote the advancement of black professionals in health care administration through education, mentorship and collaboration.
Yonathan Kebede, with Premier Health Partners of Dayton, Ohio, was the featured speaker of the evening. His presentation outlined the process of becoming board certified in health care management and a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
Campus director Gary McGee welcomed the group and applauded them for the difficult work that they do in meeting their patients’ needs, as well as the regulatory demands of the government. “It’s a very dynamic and changing industry…I’m just in awe and impressed with what you’re doing,” said Gary.
The group has included students from the campus in some meetings, and they are considering starting a student chapter at the school. “Someday we want to see some of our students accelerate through their career so that they might join, and eventually be healthcare executives like yourselves,” Gary added.
“I get to meet a lot of professionals,” said Blair Sharp, a business administration-management student who attended the meeting and added that he enjoys networking with the group. Blair will be conducting an externship with the organization in which he will assist with maintaining the group’s website.
