HBA Masterclass Series

In support of HBA’s mission to further the advancement and impact of women in the business of healthcare, we recognize and support the connection between education, continuing development, and career growth. From October 30 to November 3, 2023 (Monday – Friday), the HBA Mid-Atlantic Region - Philadelphia Chapter will present five consecutive educational events from 12 pm – 1 pm ET daily, delivered by faculty from five leading regional universities that offer advanced degree programs of interest to our members. These topics will be grouped together and presented as a “curriculum” for one registration fee. The faculty will cover ethical leadership, marketing in a changing world, group facilitation skills, the forces shaping healthcare policy, and how to develop an entrepreneurial mindset. Registration includes admission to all five virtual events, access to event recordings, and recognition of completion. HBA members and non-members – women and men – are welcome to join us. Registrants will also have the option of taking an entrepreneurial assessment test prior to the last session (additional $25.00 cost payable online to Drexel). Details to follow.
