Greetings Kansas HOSA Members and Advisors,


It is my honor to serve as your State Advisor and work with the State Officers to continue the growing success of our Kansas HOSA. 


This year, we look to continue to grow our membership numbers beyond the 1,000 member mark and continue to uphold our Gold level of Standards of Excellence. The State Officers, AHEC staff, and myself continue to work on new ideas to help our Kansas HOSA grow and be a valuable resource to all our members.  We are excited to engage our student members in our Fall and State Leadership Conferences. Those who medal in their event at the State Leadership Conference will have the opportunity to advance to compete at the international level at HOSA’s annual International Leadership Conference. Make sure to stay up to date on all important information by frequently checking the Kansas HOSA website.  

Furthermore, I would like to recognize the exceptionally dedicated and skilled individuals who make Kansas HOSA possible, the staff of The University of Kansas Medical Center Area Health Education Centers. Thank you for supporting us in all of our endeavors. To our outstanding Kansas HOSA Advisors, we appreciate all of your hard work, dedication, and guidance that you provide to all of our members. Thank you for everything you do! It is because of you that Kansas HOSA is growing and continuing to be successful.

Our members share a common passion for healthcare. Currently, Kansas is facing a shortage of healthcare professionals and Kansas HOSA members can be part of the solution. It is important as an organization that we build strong, determined and compassionate future health professionals.


Tina Goosz-Garetson
