The Tampa Bay region is rapidly growing as a hub for innovation.

As an enterprise for change in transforming health and the quality of life in our community, USF Health seeks leaders who share our entrepreneurial spirit and solution-driven mindset. We seek partners who are always learning...always seeking new ways to confront life’s challenges to make life better. 

The Leadership & Innovation Forum of Tampa (LIFT), powered by USF Health, is an exclusive membership organization designed to unite the innovators and leaders committed to advancing the economic and physical health of our region. The Leadership & Innovation Forum of Tampa Bay will connect the visionary talent of our community, sparking new ideas and collaborations that can benefit everyone. Members will form new relationships and hear from fascinating speakers who are reimagining the future of health from the environment, to the community, to the individual.

Launching in Fall 2019, the Forum schedule comprises quarterly weekday breakfast presentations with time to network, as well as an annual members-only mixer. All events will be held in downtown Tampa, usually at USF Health facilities. Members may also be invited to exclusive tours or special events on the USF campus.

Membership will be limited to 100 corporate and community leaders.
