HOSA Students Attend Leadership Conference


Englewood, Ohio – The Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC) HOSA-Future Health Professional officers attended the Central Ohio 2021 Fall Leadership Conference on November 3, at Tolles Career and Technical Center. The theme of the conference was “Ignite Your Passion.”

The conference began with speaker Jenny Hudak from Lifeline of Ohio. Ms. Hudak spoke on the importance of organ and tissue donation. Following this opening session and lunch, officers rotated throughout several workshops led by the Ohio HOSA Executive Council members.

One of the workshops included a game and a discussion that showcased the importance of balancing work and rest. Another workshop centered on writing and using SMART goals to further one’s HOSA chapter. A representative led the last workshop from Anatomage, a company that designs digital tables with 3D anatomical graphics for use in healthcare.

The afternoon also included keynote speaker Dr. Megan Amaya, Ph.D., CHES from the Ohio State University. Dr. Amaya spoke on health and wellness, including how to incorporate multiple aspects of wellness in one’s life.

The officers left the conference energized for the upcoming year. They were able to gain new insight on various aspects of healthcare and learn new topics to introduce to chapter members. Additionally, the officer team set goals and brainstormed ideas for meetings and community service projects. Without a doubt, the Fall Leadership Conference was a beneficial experience for the officers that will lead to greater chapter development.
