Get Involved: Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)
HOSA empowers future Health Professionals to become leaders in the global health community through education, collaboration and experience. The national program teaches high school students the technical and leadership competencies necessary in health sciences education programs.
By getting involved in HOSA at the local level, your organization is supporting the workforce of tomorrow and building relationships, expectations and connections to your potential future workforce at a crucial time in their development. Because this is a general health sciences club, it is important that the aging services profession is represented in the programming.
Involvement in HOSA is a great opportunity to show students already interested in healthcare professions the reason why aging services is a meaningful career. If your local high school does not have a HOSA club – encourage them to start one! Connect with your local health science instructor to learn more about how you can support this work.
