HOSA Harvey Relief

Adopt a Texas HOSA Chapter-Pay It Forward!

As you know, Hurricane Harvey has effected many HOSA members and over 400 HOSA chapters in Houston and the surrounding areas. While we know that all chapters and members will not need the same support, we would like to help relieve their burden in a way that only our HOSA family can. One way we can help other HOSA chapters is by paying for membership, fall conference registration fees, travel funds, or by replacing damaged supplies.

Medicine in the Media

You no doubt have a reason for joining HOSA and entering the world of health. We all do. For many, an experience from the past makes such an impression on them that they decide to commit their lives to healthcare. Others (including yours truly) initially discover health careers based on their academic skills & interests. As students become interested in these careers and begin to lay the groundwork for their health education, they learn more about what it means to be a health professional.
