HASA Application

In July 2009, The University of Southern Mississippi approved the formation of the Health Administration Student Association (HASA).  This student-driven association will provide its members with professional networking opportunities, career planning, and workshops & presentations by healthcare administrators from local, state and national level health care organizations.

 Any Southern Miss undergraduate or graduate student with an interest in health administration is encouraged to join; however, we strongly encourage students in the following programs to become a HASA member:

  •  Undergraduate and Traditional MPH students in the Health Policy and Administration emphasis area;
  •  Executive MPH students;
  •  Any Public Health undergraduate and/or graduate students who are interested in health administration; and
  •  Any University of Southern Mississippi students in the areas of business, marketing or other related fields. 


Currently, HASA has over 60 members from undergraduate and graduate programs in a variety of degree programs in the university.

Recent events, workshops and presentations include:


"Women in Healthcare Management" speakers (left to right): Angel Greer, BSN, MPH (CEO, Coastal Family Health Centers and Executive MPH graduate) and Kina Johnson, DrPH (s), MHSA, FACHE (Manager, Baptist Health System)

"DNV Healthcare and NIAHO: A New Choice for Hospital Accreditation" speaker, Mr. Patrick Horine (Executive VP for Accreditation - DNV Healthcare, Inc.)
