Welcome to HOSA! Future Health Professionals club
Our Hellgate HOSA chapter is one of many in the state and across the nation. Throughout the year we do a variety of activities based on club member interests. These activites include: volunteering in the community, bringing in guest speakers, job shadowing, teaching younger kids, and training activities (1st Aid, CPR, Athletic training skills),fundraising for our state competition. Each year is a bit different, we tend to work in 2 month blocks based on membership interests in these topics.
When do we meet?
We meet every Monday at lunch in Ms. Parchen’s room-390.
Members of HOSA are people who are interested in health related occupations, community service and learning more about health professions.
If this sounds like you’d fit in, come join us. Anyone is welcome, anytime of year.
Membership in HOSA offers access to some great opportunities both locally, statewide and national programs. The past two years we have had virtual events for both State competitions and National competitions. The focus of the club is determined by the interests of the membership each year, and we then move forward to build on those interests with a mix of educational resources and materials.
Each year Hellgate HOSA has had students participate in local activities; compete at the State competition and the past 2 years we have competed at the National conference. Conferences are not just competition, but much more like training events for future job interests. It is a great way to meet other students who have similar interests, and have fun at the same time.
