Students had the opportunity to talk to health professionals on Feb. 7 at a panel that Health Occupations Students of America hosted.

“This panel is for students who are interested in health sciences or just exploring different fields and are curious,” said junior Olivia Bartler, HOSA member.

At the panel, Taylor Reeves, an EMT paramedic from the Aurora Fire Department, was the guest speaker.

“HOSA wishes that students kind of get the gist of what you would expect in a healthcare professional kind of environment,” said Bartler.

The panel was created to help bring attention to the club.

“We would really like to see more people come and join,” Bartler said. “Not just juniors and seniors but like freshman and sophomores to come.”

Since this is their first time holding a panel for a guest speaker from outside the school, HOSA hopes to host panels in the future.

“We are hoping to do this yearly,” Bartler said. “This is our first one (from outside) and we would really like to continue these panels on.”

School nurse, Annette Snyder, spoke with students about what it means to be a nurse earlier in the year.

HOSA began in 2017.

HOSA meets every first Wednesday in room number 232 from 7:15- 7:45 a.m.
