HOSA is a student-led organization whose purpose is to develop leadership and technical HOSA skill competencies through a program of motivation, awareness and recognition. The mission of HOSA is to empower HOSA-Future Health Professionals to become leaders in the global health community through education, collaboration, and experience.

The Chanhassen HOSA program is run both as an activity and a club, allowing students to be involved at varying levels. Students who wish to compete in HOSA events should register on the Activities page. We compete in two local events annually: the MidWinter Competitive Events Day in early January and the State Leadership Conference in the spring. Students who participate at the activity level are able to letter in HOSA.

Those students who are not interested in competition or who just want to see what HOSA is all about before jumping in to competitive events can attend our meetings, usually scheduled for the first WIN period of the month. We'd love to have you join our Google Classroom so you can check us out and get information as it is posted. Please contact Mrs. Leatham at LeathamS@district112.org to get the current join code for the Chanhassen HOSA Google Classroom.
