Mid-Winter

Mid-winter is the first competitive conference of each HOSA year, there is one held in Rochester and one held in St. Paul aka Metro Mid-Winter, each chapter may only attend one location. It is a precursor to SLC and is meant to give competitors a first taste as to what their events entail. The event isn’t what you thought it would be like? Switch it! There is no commitment here and Midwinter is simply so everyone can try out their event beforehand. In addition, like any HOSA conference, midwinter has many sponsors and many networking opportunities. Look out for stands from Ebenezer, Be The Match, or any other of HOSA’s premier sponsors! There’s always more to look forward to too.

MRC Camp

The Medical Reserve Corps fits well within HOSA’s Goals and  HOSA’s two-fold mission to promote career opportunities in the health care industry and to enhance the delivery of quality health care to all people. MN HOSA MRC has goals of education to learn to prepare themselves for disasters and teach others to  be prepared for disasters in their homes, schools, communities or state. The courses reflect this including First Aid, CPR, Psychological First Aid, DRAT (Disaster Readiness Action for Teens), ICS 200 & 700 and other Public Health related courses that will benefit them now in preparing for HOSA events as well as preparing them to be educated  volunteers in the times of man-made or natural disasters.

Dealing with Public Health issues in areas of Drugs and Alcohol and Stress have been added this year to help HOSA members be educated on situations that they are experiencing in their communities and hearing about in the news with a better understanding on what to look for and how to react to each situation.
Our goal is to have the Most Highly Qualified Health Professionals in all areas of healthcare right in our backyard and to step in to the needed professions that are experiencing shortages and to be good community leaders.

Through the MN HOSA MRC, members are trained in camps and workshops throughout the year which gives them the opportunities to return to their communities to teach others through mentoring in schools, teaching all age groups about Emergency Preparedness and holding camps for kids in the summer.
Our Emergency Preparedness Endeavors would not be possible without our partners which include The Department of Health- Officer of Emergency Preparedness and Behavioral Health, Department of Health and Human Services, the MN National Guard, Community Emergency Response Teams, and many volunteer Health Professionals.

MRC – Date TBD
