“Part of the reason I chose the online MHA was I wanted to keep learning, but the on-site learning environment was stressful. I have five kids and wanted the balance of family. I also have tons of evening meetings. The appeal was that class could be where and when I needed it.

—Dr. Joe LaRosa, USF MHA Graduate
