HOSA was founded in 1976 to provide education and opportunities to students interested in careers in health care. Each year HOSA hosts a National Leadership Conference for students who excel in regional competitions. This year’s conference will be June 23-26 at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Fla.
Students will have the chance to attend educational workshops, tour medical and health-care facilities, participate in competitive events and associate with students who have similar interests.
