Twelve Frisco ISD students will travel to Anaheim, California, in June to participate in the HOSA National Leadership Conference.
Each qualified for the competition after placing in the top three at the state contest, held April 9-11 in Dallas. The District had several other finalists as well.
HOSA-Future Health Professionals, formerly known as Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA), is a national student organization that prepares students to enter the health care field.
The organization provides opportunities for health science education students to develop technical and leadership skills through a program of motivation, awareness and recognition.
Students compete in a variety of events to test their knowledge of the medical field and build communication and critical thinking skills.
