                       REGIONAL EVENTS


"The State Officer Team was excited to offer a regional event at Lions Club Park in Rolla. HOSA members from our central region gathered together to network, create plans for the coming year, and partake in a variety of games. We know building these strong bonds will help our HOSA members be more comfortable working together towards common goals. As the event kicked off, the State Officer Team sent a very special message to encourage our members. Can Jam, Corn Hole, Spike Ball, and Telestrations games quickly kicked off. Members shared many laughs in the following hours, and had the opportunity to speak with each other about their goals surrounding HOSA. The central region members were thankful for the opportunity to come together. Members left excited for the coming year, and ready to go beyond all limits as they become leaders in our HOSA community."

"The first-ever Kansas City HOSA Regional Event took place at the KC STEM Alliance. Throughout this event, members rotated through various breakout sessions to learn more about leadership, networking, and the field of health care. The first breakout session was led by Mr. Brian Whitley who is the Regional Inspector General for the US Department of Health and Human Services in the Midwest region. Students in this breakout session had an opportunity to hear him speak about government and public health, non-traditional career paths in medicine, and emergency medicine services. The second breakout session was led by Dr. Eve-Lynn Nelson who is a Professor in the Department of Pediatrics and Psychiatry at The University of Kansas. In her breakout session students talked about telehealth, did various mock simulations of telehealth, and talked about the differences between telehealth and in-person care one would receive. The third breakout session was led by State Officers, Vani Patel and Ysabella Olsen where they talked about how to effectively make a good impression when networking with others. Additionally, in this breakout session students took the Agile Work Profiler and had a discussion about the results. The Regional Event concluded with a short panel discussion with Mr. Brian Whitley and Dr. Eve-Lynn Nelson. Students had the opportunity to ask them questions about their experiences. The health professionals spoke about dealing with burnout and managing work-life balance. We want to thank everyone who attended the regional event, and we hope it went beyond all limits!"

"On Sunday, September 18, 2022, Missouri HOSA hosted the very first St. Louis HOSA Regional Event! Chapters from all over the St. Louis area were in attendance on this beautiful afternoon at the Saint Louis Science Center. Members were able to network with students from other chapters, learn about upcoming events that Missouri HOSA has to offer, and have fun exploring the Science Center! We began the event with a scavenger hunt that inspired creative thinking within our members to follow clues and complete tasks – sending a special shoutout to Adna, Lydia, Lillian, and Amy from Affton HOSA for earning full points and winning first place! We then ended the afternoon with a beautiful planetarium show that showcased the night sky. Thank you to all of the St. Louis HOSA members who attended -- we had so much fun together and hope that this event was just as enjoyable for you!"
