LA HOSA Honorees

Each year we find that our chapters are working with health professionals or other health organizations who teach and mentor the students.  We are very appreciative of the time they spend and the expertise they share.  Students and teachers are invited to nominate a Health Professional of the Year, and a Health Organization of the Year.  After reading the nominations, we choose who will be recognized, and at our State Leadership Conference they are presented with an award.
