The 2022 HOSA-Future Health Professionals international conference was held in Nashville, Tenn. June 22-25, where a host of Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical students traveled to represent and compete against students from across the country and internationally. The Bioscience satellite program, hosted at Gahanna Lincoln High School, witnessed 12 of its students present projects on various topics with four placing in the top 10 of their respective categories.

More than 10,500 middle, high school and post-secondary students from all over the United States, China and Canada participated in this year’s HOSA International Leadership Conference, held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Hotel.

The conference includes competitive events focused on leadership, professional and technical skills; the annual business of the organization; educational seminars; workshops and exhibits presented by professional partners; opportunities to meet people from across the globe with similar career goals, and general sessions that provide recognition and opportunity for all HOSA members.

Recent Gahanna Lincoln graduates M'Kaia Trent and Harshitha Vathyam made their second trip to the HOSA international conference. Trent and Vathyam placed fourth overall in the Health Career Display category following their presentation, marking a great improvement from the previous year. In 2021, the duo advanced to the second round of the competition but placed outside of the top 10 in the Medical Innovation category.

Eastland-Fairfield saw two additional top-10 placements with Landon Keenan and Eliza Brofford each doing so as individuals. Keenan, a recent graduate from Gahanna Lincoln, took ninth place in the extemporaneous writing event. Brofford, a junior also from Gahanna Lincoln, took 10th overall in the clinical specialty event.

Each event puts competitors through two rounds of presentations to determine their placement in the competition. Reigning state champion Morgan Albert advanced to the second round in the healthy lifestyle category, while the team of juniors Zoey Callander, Simona Hago, Francesca Nuss, and Grace Wolfe also made it to round two of the public health competition.

Also making their debuts at the HOSA international conference were juniors Anthony Lin (Biomedical Engineering), Ellie Long (Clinical Specialty), and state champion Stella Brofford (Clinical Specialty).

According to Bioscience instructor Kelly Lewis, among the participating Ohio HOSA chapters, only one placed more students inside the top 10 than the EFCTS/Gahanna Lincoln chapter.

Bioscience is one of three Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools satellite programs located inside Clark Hall at Gahanna Lincoln High School.
