SLC Prep

by Oregon HOSA

Hello Oregon HOSA!

The 2017 State Leadership Conference is coming up fast on April 4th to April 6th at the Doubletree by Hilton Portland. Everyone is working hard to fundraise and ace their competitive events! To be sure that this year is the best one yet, Oregon HOSA is sharing with you some tips to help you prepare for State Leadership Conference!

1) Bring snacks!

Late night munchies and curfew don’t mix well. It’s very important to abide by curfew and having snacks present can save you a lot of trouble! It also helps save money on food and will keep you satisfied during your break times. Plus, you can always share with your roommates and bond!

2) Have your Event Guidelines!

You will not be able to attend the orientation for your competitive event without your competitive event guidelines. The guidelines are also extremely useful and filled with information. An explanation of the competitive event, supplies list, rubric, study guide, resources and much more can be found there!

3) Bring a Sewing Kit!

It’s a fashion disaster! You’re about to attend opening session and a button pops loose from your shirt! Maybe you need a safety pin or a friend needs to sew something down. It’s always handy to have a small sewing kit around in case something unfortunate happens! Don’t forget to go over the dress code for sessions. You don’t want to be declined at the door for wearing open toed shoes!

If you aren’t sure of what to pack for your stay, here is a suggested packing list:

  • Electronics and their corresponding chargers
  • Toiletries (toothbrush/paste, comb, shampoo, contacts/solution, hair ties, deodorant, Q-tips, etc.…)
  • 1-2 Sets of Business Attire (Navy/Black suit with white shirt, ties for men, closed toed shoes, knee length skirts for women) Be sure to look at the HOSA dress code!
  • 2-3 Sets of Casual Attire
  • 1-2 Sets of Pajamas
  • Competitive Event Supplies
  • A notebook and writing utensils
  • Extra socks/pantyhose
  • Wallet
  • Any needed medication (please adhere to your school’s medication policies!)
  • Snacks

Your state officers can not wait to see you excel at SLC and represent Oregon at the International level at the 2017 International Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida, from June 21st to June 24th. Keep your head up, study hard, and finish strong, Oregon HOSA!

TELL YOUR STORY – Imagination, creativity and characters all come to life in stories. For generations, storytelling has connected us to the past, present, and future. Stories keep hopes and dreams alive, transport us to new worlds and allow us to live in someone else’s shoes. Stories are not just in books, but on television and in social media feeds. What about your story? Who will tell it? Who will hear it? The stage is set…the camera is rolling…the pen is in your hand. It’s time to tell the story that only you can tell….your story.

Alumni Spotlight – Hong Nguyen

by Oregon HOSA

Hello-Kitty loving HOSA alumni Hong Nguyen was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. A true native to Oregon, she went to school here and has never left. She joined HOSA because she was interested in pursuing a career in the medical field. In the beginning of high school Hong was still exploring different areas, however by senior year she knew exactly what she wanted to do for college.

Hong started her HOSA journey at Benson Polytechnic High School as a freshman in 2000. The program at Benson was a perfect fit for a career minded student! “It gave me a foundation before getting to college; we learned a lot of things (i.e. medical terminology, anatomy, referencing medical journals) I don’t think a typical high school student had the chance to do” Benson’s specialized program integrated HOSA well into most of its curriculum. Hong explains the extensive hands-on experience they had in and out of the classroom; teaching CPR to students at Benson or middle school students at another location, meeting weekly with a resident at a nursing home, doing fillings on fake teeth, checking each other’s BP, the list goes on. And what better way to show off her skills but by competing at state?

State competitions were incredibly fun, showing off whose school is the best. Possibly one of the best perks was meeting so many peers from all over the state of Oregon, some of which she built long lasting friendships with to this day. Not one for playing it safe with one or two competitions, Hong went all in and made the most out of SLC as she could by competing in medical spelling, poster presentation (health career display), CPR, HOSA bowl, medical assisting, interviewing skills, job seeking skills, and some recognition event(s) (i.e. service award) and more! HOSA Bowl however was her favorite. This fast paced, competitive event not only offered well-earned bragging rights for the winners, but was incredibly fun!
Hong began working as a pharmacy intern for Fred Meyer in 2010 afterwards, graduating from OSU/OHSU College of Pharmacy in 2012. She worked as a staff pharmacist up until July 2014 when she trained to become a Clinical Staff Pharmacist (CSP). One of her favorite accomplishments in her career was finally becoming a CSP. She works one on one with patients as their coach; the programs they have at Fred Meyer include Diabetes, Heart Healthy (Lipids + BP), Fitness/Nutrition/Weight Management, and Smoking Cessation. She also does Medication Therapy Management meetings with patients, etc. From time to time, you can even find her in Fred Meyer’s pharmacy ads!

Like many others, HOSA gave her direction before going to college rather than figuring out what she wanted to do or even switching majors after years of college. Hong elaborates, “Some people think they want to do something, or maybe be a doctor and once they get there, they realize it is not for them—but after they wasted a year with pre-reqs.”
Her one piece of advice to all HOSA members would be to take advantage of all the exciting, once in a lifetime opportunities HOSA offers. You are a part of an organization that not everyone has the advantage of being a part of. Reap every benefit from it that you can while you can. The education, experiences, and cherish the amazing people you meet along the way.
