Student Highlights

“Working in the healthcare industry for over 18 years as an African American female clinician, I have seen what makes healthcare great and some of the things that can be improved. After being frustrated and wanting to be a voice for the patients and teammates who don’t have a voice, I challenged myself to get an MHA degree. This program can be as life-changing for you as it was for me. Getting your master’s degree is not easy but the hard work will be worth having more control of your professional future.”
