UNF student receives competitive national health administration award

Jarrell Mahusay professional headshotThe Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education has awarded University of North Florida Brooks College of Health student Jarrell Mahusay the CAHME - Tim Campbell Scholarship in recognition of his spirit of service and volunteerism.

Mahusay, a first-generation college student in UNF’s CAHME-accredited Master of Health Administration (MHA) program, is recognized for his passion for increasing diversity within the health administration community, providing mentorship and coaching, and advancing the minority community in healthcare.

Mahusay received his MBA from UNF in 2008 and then served in the Navy as a submarine supply officer. His passion to serve continued as he volunteered for the Convoy of Hope, an outreach mission for an impoverished community in Hawaii. He led the social services outreach arm and helped provide free healthcare services to families in need. It was through volunteering at Convoy of Hope that Mahusay discovered his passion to serve through healthcare.

After returning to UNF for a second degree, Mahusay established the Case Competition Club because of his passion to help other students learn. Mahusay values servant leadership and enthusiastically seeks to serve others by helping other students achieve their career goals through networking events, dynamic community partnerships, and outreach. UNF Case Club affords students real-life experience to apply didactic principles of the health administration program and to prepare for a future in helping others through compassionate healthcare.

Tim Campbell, the namesake of the scholarship, was known as a man who went out of his way to help others and Mahusay hopes to model his service in the same way to the Jacksonville community with humility and compassion, guided by his Christian faith and love for family.
