In early April, Halmos College Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) traveled to Orlando, FL to attend the HOSA State Leadership Conference. There the Halmos College’s HOSA was recognized for contributions towards HOSA’s National Service Project with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). NSU’s HOSA was also listed as the largest post-secondary chapter in Florida.

This three-day conference allows students to participate in the Competitive Events Program. This program is designed to motivate HOSA members and provide a system for recognizing the competencies developed by members through Health Science and Biomedical Science class instruction, related job training, and HOSA related activities. While there, Halmos’s HOSA students had 14 first-place winners, 2 second-place winners, and 1 third-place winner. Students placing in the top three of each category automatically move to the International Leadership Conference will be held this June in Dallas, TX.

HOSA is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of ACTE (Association for Career and Technical Education). HOSA’s two-fold mission is to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. Halmos College HOSA Organization’s advisor is Biological Sciences faculty member Omar Eldakar, Ph.D.
