From Oct. 17-18, Stephens College welcomed the Missouri chapter of HOSA-Future Healthcare Professionals for its annual student leadership conference. More than 300 high school students and their advisers attended the event, which drew students from all around the state.  

Stephens College has been active in HOSA-Future Healthcare Professionals for the last several years attending many of their conferences and training sessions and providing faculty guest speakers for a variety of sessions. For the first time, one of their premier events was held on Stephens’ campus. 

HOSA-Future Healthcare Professionals invited Stephens as the host to present awards to students who best reflected the College’s Ten Ideals. Vice President of Enrollment Management Brian Sajko presented at their closing ceremony. 

“It’s a great way to get in front of those students who are interested in pursuing the health sciences and to let them know we have a strong School of Health Sciences here,” Sajko says. “But most of all, it’s about helping all students discover the many different paths to leadership and career in the health sciences. We are always happy to work with Missouri educators to provide venues and opportunities for learning and collaboration.”

The mission of HOSA is to empower HOSA-Future Health Professionals to become leaders in the global health community through education, collaboration and experience. The national organization has a highly active Missouri chapter.
