Vicksburg-Warren HOSA Students Attend Leadership Conference

Vicksburg-Warren School District student members of HOSA — Future Health Professionals attended the state’s leadership conference in Pascagoula in November. Approximately 65 students from Health Science I-II and Biomedical I-III increased their leadership skills through presentations at the conference. The event also allowed students to prepare for district and state HOSA competitions through test-taking training and provided hands-on learning activities, including performing procedures on patient mannequins. Instructors and HOSA advisors Eloise Ford, Vera Igbokwe and Gloria Thomas served as facilitators for the conference along with Elimar Ratliff, Hinds Community College’s dean of postsecondary education.
