We represent N.A.H.S.E. in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and our members range from graduate students, to early and mid-level careerists, to senior executives, and even to healthcare entrepreneurs working in all facets of care administration.  What unites us is a commitment to advocate for healthcare equity among all populations and elevating the quality of healthcare services rendered to minority and underserved communities.
