The impetus behind Health Industry Networking Team or HINT was a small, but mighty contingency of health care entities in the South Lake area that came to the conclusion “local health care issues need to be addressed by local health care professionals.”
Since there was no group of this kind in our area, once the idea aired it seemed to take off, culminating with the initial meeting of more than 25 health-related persons in March 2009 at a Clermont restaurant. We Have Grown: Our meetings now have in excess of 45 Health Care Professionals attending monthly.
The basic structure of the hour-and-a-half sessions each first Tuesday of the month will include healthcare networking before and after lunch, with a short presentation by a local health care professional or business group during the meeting. HINT invites all area (Orange, Lake & Sumter Counties) health-related individuals and businesses to join in focusing on community with a give-back spirit, adapting to the needs and wants of the South Lake Community.
