Students with Health Science and HOSA have busy year and summer

From staff and press reports


Students from Winston County Health Science class at the WCLTC are in Nashville to compete in the 2013 HOSA National Leadership Conference

Local students of Penny Wells’ Health Science class are attending the Health Occupational Student Association (HOSA)’s 36th Annual National Leadership Conference in Nashville, TN.

The conference brings together thousands of future health professionals from across the country so they may experience HOSA at its absolute best. This National Leadership Conference provides a great opportunity for students and advisors to learn and grow so that they may one day experience a fulfilling career as a Health Professional.

Over the four-day conference, more than 5,000 delegates are expected to participate in 56 competitive events in six program areas in two levels at the National Leadership Conference.

HOSA competitive events are conducted as incentives for HSE students to be recognized for achievements related to career and leadership development.

HOSA is the only student organization that is 100 percent health care and is committed to building a pipeline of health care professionals. Nationwide, HOSA has 130,000 members, and that number continues to increase each year, with this being their 29th year of consecutive growth.

The students and instructor Penny Wells would like to thank Winston Medical Center, Dr. Steven Yarbrough, Winston and Louisville Career and Technology Center and the Louisville Municipal School District for making the trip possible and supporting HOSA.
