Professional Development organizations are essential to career growth, development and advancement. We recognized a gap of this presence in the region’s Healthcare Industry, especially amongst Blacks.
NAHSE Heartland not only seeks to engage Black Leaders within our immediate region but also to connect and network with like individuals from neighboring cities and states as well as across the Nation in order to advance health equity and social justice through the EXPOSURE, ENGAGEMENT and EMPOWERMENT of Black health care leaders.
