DENVER (Nov. 5, 2013) – Over 400 secondary and post-secondary students interested in health care careers attended the Colorado HOSA Fall Leadership Conference on November 5 at the Pepsi Center. 28 Health Science Technology students from MCC received leadership training, attended workshops and enjoyed a Courtside Experience during pre-game festivities.
The leadership training was led by Curtis Haley of TRI Leadership Resources, LLC. Workshops included presenters from Colorado AHEC (Area Health Education Center), University of Colorado – Denver and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation – Colorado Chapter. Attendees also learned more about HOSA, while perusing the colleges and universities attending the College Fair.
“The students were absorbed in leadership activities,” noted HOSA Advisor and MCC Health Science Technology Faculty KC Sailsbery. “Many of them returned from the conference excited to study and explore different HOSA competition events as we begin to prepare for the state competition coming up in March in Pueblo, Colorado.”
“It’s well-known shortages are expected across many health care professions, and I’m ecstatic we had so many students interested in pursuing the health care field at this years’ HOSA Fall Leadership Conference,” said Jen Staley-Girvin, Colorado HOSA State Advisor. “Not only did everybody explore their future career, but we had a great time at the Denver Nuggets game.”
