The HOSA-Future Health Professionals offers a great experience for State Officers, and it is called the Washington Leadership Academy (WLA). The most recent WLA event took place in the nation’s capital September 19-22, 2015. WLA is a time for HOSA State Officers to make personal connections with other leaders across the nation and for the first time Puerto Rico; it is also a time to obtain essential knowledge about leadership and the National Institutes of Health and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. Active engagement, contagious energy, and courageous acts will be present throughout the entire conference.
Sussex Tech’s own Emily Lee had an opportunity to meet with Delaware Legislators on Capitol Hill as they learn how to advocate for CTE and CTSOs. Emily as well as other HOSA State Officers who have attended this conference in the past have claimed that it has changed their lives, and that it is something they will never forget. Thank you, Emily, for representing Sussex Tech and HOSA in Washington D.C.!!
