Frisco ISD students will compete in the HOSA National Leadership Conference to be held virtually June 24-27.
Each qualified for the competition after an outside consulting firm analyzed scores from the Area Competition earlier this spring.
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.
Congratulations to the following students who qualified for nationals and the college scholarship winners who were awarded thousands of dollars across the District.
