Get to Know Dr. Hanadi Hamadi
  • What brought you to UNF?
    UNF’s commitment to student and faculty, the rich healthcare community that UNF partners with and my desire to make a change in a robust healthcare environment.
  • Do you have a favorite spot on campus?
    My favorite spot on campus is wherever the students are; they are reason I joined academia and the reason why I stay. I do like spending time at the “Peace Plaza” and enjoying Mahatma Gandhi and MLK Statue. It’s a good reminder of how knowledge can change the world.
  • What’s the most rewarding academic experience you’ve had at UNF in or out of the classroom?
    There are many rewarding moments, but the most rewarding is when alumni come back to say hello and share what they have learned from my class, how they are using it and how much they appreciate it.
  • If you weren’t teaching, what else would you be doing?
    If I were not teaching, I would be researching, investigating and traveling the world to learn more about health systems in other countries.
  • What is your favorite memory from your undergraduate days?
    The moment I realized that everyone’s path is not the same, and my path might be filled with detours but it’s my path to walk.
  • What advice would you give a student who is about to graduate?
    Trust yourself and always be open to learning new things.
Dr. Hanadi Hamadi, Brooks
My personal philosophy in life is to always ask, “How can I help?”
