HOSA (Health occupations students of America) is a career and technical student organization for high school and post-secondary students who plan to pursue a health care career, and is committed to building a pipeline of future health care professionals.
During the month of November, the HOSA members and community held several events to recognize HOSA week.
HOSA provides a strong foundation for preparing tomorrow’s healthcare professionals through skill development, leadership opportunities, and community service.
