On Friday, September 30th, JSEC students participated in the RI Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) conference at the JWU campus.  Members of the executive council led roughly 120 HOSA members in workshops, keynote speeches, a gallery walk about the competitive events offered, and fun games to learn about HOSA and healthcare. Students had a wonderful learning experience participating in workshops that included CPR, Vital Signs, Phlebotomy, Leadership, Suturing, Micro-Pipetting, and Shirt Design.

The purpose of HOSA-Future Health Professionals is to develop leadership and technical HOSA skill competencies through a motivation, awareness, and recognition program, which is an integral part of the Health Science Education instructional program.  Students had an amazing day learning new concepts, ideas, eating awesome food, having fun, and getting to meet a lot of new friends.

The Providence Journal Bulletin (Projo)  even came in to cover the story of JSEC students attending the HOSA Conference!  Some students were interviewed by the Projo about a week following the event.
