All good things must come to an end, and today was the final day of competition at the 29th National HOSA Leadership Conference. Competitive events preparations began early today as some judges and event personnel boarded buses at 6:40 a.m. for the off site competitions.

The off site events that took place at Cerritos College were:
Sports Medicine
Physical Therapy
Dental Assisting
Medical Assisting Clinical

The events at North Orange County ROP were:
Nursing Assisting
EMT
Administrative Medical Assisting
Personal Care

The events at Bryman College were:
Practical Nursing
Medical Laboratory Assisting

A special thanks to these sites for allowing HOSA competitors to invade their campuses today. It was very helpful to have some of our skill events at health care educational facilities.

The following events were held at the Hilton:

HOSA Bowl & HOSA Bowl Finals
Researched Persuasive Speech
Community Awareness
Prepared Speaking 
Speaking Skills
Biomedical Debate
Career Health Display
Medical Spelling
Dental Spelling
Extemporaneous Speaking

Knowledge Tests that included:  
Pathophysiology
Pharmacology
Nutrition
Concepts of Health Care
Human Growth and Development

Exhibitors made the most of the final day at the NLC. There were many interested delegates still scoping out the products and information available at the exhibits. The exhibitors closed at 1 p.m.

The Educational Symposiums continued throughout the day. Some of the symposiums included Stress: Insight and Opportunities, Careers in Medical Imaging, No Soft Skills…No Jobs, and several others. The Educational Symposiums were outstanding this year and there were many requests for return visits for next year.

The New Advisor Leadership Academy was a favorite for newcomers. Wanda Wolf provided a lot of information on how to create a successful HOSA chapter in the advisors’ schools. We appreciate Wanda sharing her expertise with the new advisors from across the nation.

The National Recognition Session began at 7:30 p.m. on Friday evening. It is here that the hard work of HOSA advisors and members who have selflessly given their time and service for various projects or activities is recognized. The number of accomplishments of HOSA members is always significant.

The Outstanding HOSA Advisors Awards were presented tonight. Although all HOSA advisors give of themselves tremendously and have such a significant impact on the lives of their students, certain advisors from each state are recognized annually for going the extra mile.
