This year, James Clemens HOSA has a membership count of 79 members and for them, November 6-12 is National HOSA week. Some members of HOSA are preparing to pre-qualify for the state competition. Students are making videos, writing resumes, taking pictures, and/or sitting for prequalifying exams.

As members of HOSA, students work on enhancing their leadership skills, mentoring and networking skills, knowledge about the healthcare field, and promoting healthcare within their communities. They acquired many of these skills by attending the Junior Leadership Development Conference and the state competitions where they compete in several different health-related events.

After bringing home 16 medals earlier this year, James Clemens has a lot to own up to next year at the State Competition in Montgomery. Many won awards for educating an audience about a health topic, making a PSA about nutrition and fitness, and for using creative problem solving skills. Also, students excelled in Medical Math and Medical Reading.

The members of HOSA are very active in their school and community promoting healthcare. For example, HOSA members organize events annually where they are able to give back to their community. One such event is the blood drive they organized in the spring of 2016 and will again do so this year. Teachers, students, and even parents donated blood and the event has been a success.

They also recently had a Dessert and Learn on Breast Cancer Awareness for faculty, administrative staff, and visitors. Students presented information about self breast exams, mammography to detect any lumps, genetic testing, and breast cancer risks. Students educated the audience about the BRCA Gene 1 and 2 testing available at the Smith Genomic Clinic on the campus of Hudson Alpha.
