Let’s Connect: SFHEF Spotlight

Joining the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum was a decision that changed the course of my life. Being involved with this volunteer-based organization has allowed me to mature and grow professionally amongst a network of healthcare professionals who dedicate their lives to improving their community through the use of civic involvement. My beginnings with SFHEF started when I was enrolled as a MHA student at Florida Atlantic University. Although I was interning and making the best use of my time as a graduate student, I began to realize my efforts to establish a career would hardly be conducive unless I networked with other healthcare professionals.
In 2012 I joined ACHE as a student associate and became a member after graduating with my Masters degree. The educational and networking events I attended through SFHEF were all invaluable experiences that enhanced my professional development. After interacting with high caliber individuals at these events, I began to conduct and present myself in a more professional demeanor which showed my colleagues that I knew how to be a “good fit” within reputable organizations. These events were also fun and fulfilling. As I began to attend more events, I saw many familiar faces and made some life-long friends who gave me advice about this rapidly changing industry. 
This is my third year as an ACHE member, and I currently hold the position of Treasurer-Elect for the SFHEF board. I have already been exposed to several accounting concepts from this experience and hope to learn more as I continue my tenure with this leading organization. By joining ACHE, I was able to: learn about innovative technological advances, meet experienced professionals, and gain insight about population health. With this being said, I would like to invite you to connect with SFHEF – not only for the purposes of advancing your career, but to join outstanding individuals who can help you contribute to the South Florida community in ways you have yet to see!
Until next time, I’m Thomas Sebastian ... let’s connect!
