Bill’s favorite part about being on the HOSA Board is the “absolutely great group of people to work with. They love kids, they love the field of healthcare and are on the board to melt the two together. These are people willing to roll up their sleeves and do the work to make multiple events happen to expose students to healthcare and give them a chance to network with enthusiastic people working in healthcare”
