Dr.Daniel Strauss, dean of National University’s College of Professional Studies in Florida, has been appointed as president-elect of the Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce. This means he will serve as incoming president at the end of this year unless the current president chooses to extend his term.
He has already been asked to join the mayor and local officials on an annual trip to the state capital of Tallahassee earlier this week to meet with state legislators on issues of local interest.
Dr. Strauss is also chairman of the Pinellas Park Medical District, where he has recently developed a new merit-based scholarship program for students pursuing healthcare degrees, including students from NUHS. He has led many local outreach efforts for the organization bringing health care access and awareness to the community, and networking on behalf of the university with other healthcare and educational institutions.
“One of our university’s goals is to be an active and contributing member of the communities we serve. Dr. Strauss has done an excellent job representing National University in the local community, and bringing awareness of our program to local officials, non-profit organizations and other health care interests,” says President Joseph Stiefel.
