Last Thursday and Friday, HOSA set out for the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a leadership conference. Once they arrived, students attended lectures about competition events like dental science, sports medicine, and veterinary medicine. Students could also attend lectures about community issues such as rape and drug abuse. Thursday night, all 800 attendees went to a bonfire social on the beach. During the bonfire, some students performed a skit about the dangers of throwing gasoline on a fire. Overall, the HOSA conference provided valuable information for students, and it helped shine a light for students on what they might want to compete in.
