Dr. Seth Forman Dr. Seth Forman Dr. Seth Forman was recently elected president of the board of trustees for Hillel Academy in Tampa, completing a journey that began when he was a student at the school and continued when his children became students there as well.

Forman succeeds Stanford Solomon as board president.

The selection of Forman is part of a move to select a new leadership team, new board additions and an ambitious strategic roadmap to secure the school’s future in the Tampa Bay area, according to a prepared statement from the school.

“It’s important for this community, for any major community, to have a thriving Jewish day school, as it helps to prepare and educate the young Jewish leaders of tomorrow,” said Forman, adding that he is very enthusiastic about the school’s new direction and focus.

Forman and his three brothers are graduates of Hillel Academy. In addition, all of their children are Hillel Academy graduates or are current students at the school.

Forman, who graduated from Hillel Academy in 1986, practices clinical dermatology, and dermatopathology in Tampa. He also is the principal investigator and CEO of Forward Clinical Trials, where he has led multiple research endeavors for psoriasis and other chronic dermatological conditions. He also has served as a regional member of the National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) and as the medical director of the NPFs “Walk for a Cure” in 2015.

In addition, Forman serves the community as a member of the Rays 100, a group of business leaders focused on keeping the Tampa Bay Rays in the region.

Forman and his wife, Hannah, live in Tampa with their three children. Sons Sam and Gabriel attend Hillel Academy, in eighth and fourth grade respectively. Daughter Abigail is a rising junior at Berkeley Preparatory School.
