Health Science News Letter
What's new in 2013!
During this school year our students have positively impacted their own personal health and/or the health and lives of others in the community as they pursue their career goal. On Thursday, January 17th at six in the evening, families are invited to attend the Health Science Induction Ceremony. We are validating their health career and celebrating accomplishments made by high school students and HOSA (Health Occupational Students of America) members. A reception will follow the ceremony.
Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)
Kentucky State Leadership Conference
March 6th-9th, Elkhorn Crossing School HOSA members will be attending the 2013 Kentucky State Leadership Conference in Louisville, KY. Members will be competing in various health science events, participating in educational symposiums and viewing exhibits from other HOSA Chapters. If the member places in the top 3 in their event they will advance to the National Leadership Conference. The registration form, $75 fee (pays for hotel, registration, and transportation), and a copy of the members insurance card (front and back) are due January 21st, no late fees or forms will be accepted.
We are very excited for our upcoming community service projects and hope that all students in Health Science/HOSA will get involved! HOSA juniors will be completing Meyers-Briggs testing and participating in a career calling session during the January 18th club meeting. Health Science sophomores will be beginning Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training on Feburary 9th. The Health Science freshman have been invited by the University of Kentucky Healthcare to tour emergency and "hybrid" facilities. We are really excited to see all grade levels start implementing their Health Science Year Long Projects for their Spring Presentations.
