AHEC Newsletter – Fall 2016
The North Dakota HOSA program is an organization that provides a unique opportunity for leadership development, motivation, and recognition for secondary, postsecondary, collegiate, and adult students enrolled in health science classes. It is administered through the North Dakota Area Health Education Centers and is expanding in the state. In October, three new chapters were awarded funding through Sanford Health. The three chapters are: North Central Area Career and Technology Center in Rugby, Minot Public School, and Mandan Public School. These schools join a state membership of 303 students and advisors and 16 local North Dakota chapters.
Currently, North Dakota has 16 local HOSA chapters: Bismarck High School, Century High School, Grand Forks High School, Hettinger Public School, Killdeer Public School, Langdon High School, Legacy High School in Bismarck, Mandan High School, Minot Public School, Missouri River Area Career and Technology Center in Bismarck, North Central Area Career and Technology Center in Rugby, North Valley Career and Technology Center in Grafton, Red River High School in Fargo, Sheyenne High School in Fargo, Southeast Region Career and Technology Center in Oakes, and West Fargo High School. These schools are working with students and their future healthcare career. If you are a healthcare provider, contact your local HOSA! Get involved with the future healthcare providers!
