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.

We are more than thankful for the total involvement of FranU for judging at their facility, providing workshop speakers, expo presenters, and being a sponsor. Thank you for helping teach and build our future health care workforce!
2020 Health Professional of the Year
Miss Jeanne Solis
Louisiana Office of Public Health, Region 3
Miss Solis doesn't slow down! She has always been a supporter of HOSA, and has worked with us each year as either a judge, an expo presenter, a speaker, or a workshop presenter. This year she started working with HOSA chapters at schools and with our state officers to help them learn about what they can do to create a healthier Louisiana.
Thank you, Miss Solis!
