The NEW Oregon HOSA

by Oregon HOSA

Greetings Current and Prospective HOSA Chapters!

We are excited to announce the new Oregon HOSA!  It’s a new day and we invite you to join us as we reenergize Oregon HOSA and build the premier organization for student leaders preparing for careers in the healthcare industry.

What’s in store for the new Oregon HOSA?
There is already new interest and new chapters popping up across the State of Oregon.  We are planning to hold a one day Oregon HOSA State Leadership Conference on April 21, 2012 at Willamette High School.  HOSA members from all over Oregon will have the chance to compete, gain leadership skills, elect state leaders, and celebrate a new beginning for Oregon HOSA!  Following this conference, Oregon HOSA will join the national delegation of future health professionals to compete in Orlando at the HOSA National Leadership Conferencefrom June 20-23, 2012 at Walt Disney World.

The National Leadership Conference 2012 will be held at the Disney's Coronado Springs Resort this summer

HOSA’s national theme this year is IMPACT!  And, together we’re going to make a huge impact in Oregon through HOSA.  We have recently formed the Oregon HOSA Board of Trustees to govern Oregon HOSA, Inc. and hired our new Executive Director Ryan Underwood and State Advisor Danielle Tolentino Tuason.  Together with our alumni, current advisors, Oregon Department of Education, and industry partners, Oregon HOSA is ready to support your school in establishing and building a local Health Occupations Students of America program.

We are also conducting a “HOSA Needs Assessment Survey” and would love to get your feedback on health science education and what HOSA can do to be a valuable resource and contributor to your program.  We would love it if you could take a moment to complete this brief survey.  Click here for survey
