Eastland-Fairfield students participate in HOSA Future Health Professionals International Leadership Conference

Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools (EFCTS) students from the Bioscience Satellite at Clark Hall in Gahanna recently participated at the HOSA Future Health Professionals International Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida, where students in school districts from around the world competed in various leadership and skills competitions.

The conference featured over 11,500 students from across the United States and several countries, including Canada and China.

Led by HOSA President Sarah Fleischman from Florida, delegates took advantage of four general sessions, 110 educational symposiums, and over 75 exhibits from companies, universities, and nonprofit organizations. Speakers included Dr. Steve Robbins, a specialist in cognitive neuroscience, socio-psychology, and communication, and the 20th U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Jerome Adams.

Students who attended the HOSA International National Leadership Conference and received awards and recognition were:

  • Blake Jeffries (Gahanna Lincoln) in epidemiology, Emmanuel Lewis (Reynoldsburg) in biomedical laboratory science and Alyse Steigerwald (Gahanna Lincoln) in clinical specialty
  • Eastland-Fairfield was also recognized as an Outstanding HOSA chapter and was represented by Peace Folarin (Gahanna Lincoln)
  • Receiving the Barbara James Service Awards for collectively amassing over 1000 volunteer hours in the area of health were Gahanna Lincoln students Mark Copeland, Alaina Mehnert, Anisha Patel, Hayley Rogers, and Hanna Ford, Brooke Johnson and Selin Ustel

HOSA is the only national student organization that exclusively serves secondary and postsecondary/collegiate students in pursuit of a career in the health professions. The purpose of the HOSA organization is to develop leadership and technical HOSA skill competencies through a program of motivation, awareness, and recognition, which is an integral part of the Health Science Education instructional program.
