About 900 Oakland County health science students will compete in more than 50 events. More than 100 business and health professionals, teachers, parents, middle school students and advisors will volunteer their time and share their expertise as event managers, event judges, test proctors and hospitality team members. Students will compete individually and/or in teams in health science professions, emergency preparedness, leadership and teamwork event categories.
HOSA is an international student organization that promotes career opportunities in the healthcare industry and enhances the delivery of quality healthcare. Farmington Public Schools has provided HOSA opportunities for Farmington students at all three high schools for more than 10 years. Last summer at the International competition in Nashville, Tennessee, Farmington and Harrison High Schools brought home silver and bronze awards in several events.
