USF Health celebrates “10 Together As One” [multimedia]

Approximately 1,000 USF Health faculty, staff and students — many sporting their USF green and gold — gathered beneath the oaks near Lake Behnke today to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of USF Health.

The event featured a barbecue served up by USF Health senior leaders, including Dr. Charles Lockwood, senior vice president, USF Health, and dean of the Morsani College of Medicine; Dr. Donna Petersen, dean of the College of Public Health; Dr. Kevin Sneed, dean of the College of Pharmacy; Dr. William S. Quillen, director of the School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences; and Richard Sobieray, CEO of the USF Physicians Group.

The festive atmosphere was stoked by entertainment from members of the USF Herd of Thunder, Rocky the Bull, the USF cheerleaders, and a D.J. spinning music from the 60s to contemporary.

Today recognized the 10th anniversary of USF Health – a brand launched Sept. 27, 2005 to reflect the unique collaboration and teamwork across all our colleges and the physician group practice and embodied in the anniversary theme: “10 Together As One.”

A decade ago, USF Health was created around a mission of envisioning and implementing the future of health.  A commitment, which continues today, was made to improve the full spectrum of health, from the environment to the community, to the individual.

USF Health is the partnership of the USF Health Morsani College of Medicine, the College of Nursing, the College of Public Health, the College of Pharmacy, the School of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Sciences, and the USF Physicians Group. It is an integral part of the University of South Florida, a high-impact, global research university dedicated to student success.
