The future of healthcare is calling

HOSA patch/logo.

HOSA: Future Health Professionals (formerly known as Health Occupations Students of America) is an international career and technical student organization endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Technology Education Division of ACTE. This club is for anyone interested in the healthcare field. We have students who desire to become doctors, nurses, dentists, EMTs, biotechnology researchers, and more. It is only our second year as a HOSA chapter and we have quadrupled! You may have already heard of HOSA. Maybe you watched the HOSA videos about our first aid kit sales, found us in the HUB selling SBA encouragement grams, seen posters promoting heart health, or heard about the blood drives sponsored by HOSA and DECA. Our club is focused on service, fun, healthcare, connection, and did we mention we are fiercely competitive? We like to play games, and if you have been around Mrs. Wollan’s room when we are, there is no doubt you heard us! But, we know when it is time to get serious; we pull together and get things done.

As for competition, in 2022, the HOSA state competition was virtual. As a first year club, we did compete and even had one student who placed 9th in biotechnology. This year, we took 31 students to state in Spokane. We placed in the top 10 in many of the categories in which we competed! Two students qualified for nationals, placing 1st in biotechnology and 3rd place in healthcare photography, and will compete in Dallas this June.

How would we describe HOSA? A club with a focus on service and healthcare filled with friendships that feel like family.

Do you want to make a difference in our school, community, and world through healthcare? We invite you to join us on Tuesdays at 2pm in room 127!
