WHAT WILL LEAD ME TO WHERE I WANT TO GO?

Health Science students across the country are attempting to balance their priorities in all the activities available to them. With so many choices, the decision can be a difficult one. The question that needs to be asked, “What will lead me to where I want to go?” One student found that preparation for HOSA-Future Health Professionals competitive events could help her find the answer to the question of what activity will lead me to where I want to be. When asked about her participation in HOSA competitive events, Beth Jackson-Misenar said, “I would say that when I participated in the Researched Persuasive Speaking competitive event, it gave me the confidence to stand in front of a group of people and speak passionately about a topic.” She further stated, “those experiences also taught me the importance of being well prepared.” Her future is now. Dr. Beth Jackson-Misenar successfully completed pre-med courses, medical school and her residency in surgery. For the past eight years in her practice as a general surgeon, Dr. Jackson-Misenar has lived the HOSA theme of “Create Your Future.” Each day she serves those entrusted in her care! She is just one example of the amazing HOSA-Future Health Professional alumnus who is making a difference in the health industry.
