Greetings Kansas HOSA Members and Advisors!

It is my privilege to work alongside our amazing State Officers to ensure the success of Kansas HOSA during this school year. Get inspired to engage your students in Kansas HOSA!

Your Kansas HOSA State Officer Team has developed a Program of Work to establish impactful goals with an emphasis on chapter relationships as well as increased communication. The State Officer Team plans to provide chapters with opportunities to interact with other chapters within their own region as well as across the great state of Kansas! The State Officer Team is also working to increase our membership numbers through establishing Middle School and Postsecondary Kansas HOSA Chapters. Overall, we are dedicated to enhancing the experience of our members through various means.

This year, we are excited to engage our student members in our Fall and Spring Leadership Conferences. Those who place in the top three and meet the International Mean Scores in their event 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. This year’s State Officer Team will also be posting on the Kansas HOSA social media pages, so keep a lookout for updates and announcements from the state and international levels throughout the year that will help your chapter succeed!

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.
