It’s truly something to be able to convene in the Capitol of our great nation with HOSA Leaders from across the world, to learn and grow as leaders in an ever-evolving, ever-diversifying organization that stands at the forefront in the bridging of leadership and quality health science education. Belle Chasse HOSA along with Louisiana HOSA did just that at the HOSA Washington Leadership Academy Conference in Washington DC. Louisiana State President- Elect Macye Brown, Belle Chasse High School Advisor Jennifer Valotta, State Advisor Shirlene Bender and 2 other State Officers ( Kenner Discovery's Najah Nicholas- State President & Marise Wilson- State Secretary) found themselves on a journey like no other. They met with State Congressmen and Women at our Nation's Capital to discuss the future of healthcare, CTSOs and the future of health education in the state of Louisiana. They were part of many historical events such as the wreath laying ceremony at Arlington Cemetery, visiting the Smithsonian museums, traveling to local medical schools and observing monuments, the Pentagon, and much more. The most important aspect of the trip was meeting HOSA members from all over the world and making a global impact in Health Science Education and the future of our healthcare system. The members ranged from ages 12-25 yet they all came together for the same reason to Make A Change in our Future Healthcare Professionals.
