Statement Against Racism

We are saddened by recent events and would like to acknowledge the emotions of many across the nation, including many HOSA members, may be feeling. As part of our mission and goals, we are dedicated to creating leaders in the global health community who are understanding of health care issues and the needs of the community. To achieve this, we must acknowledge the systematic racism that has existed in our country.
 

HOSA's Commitment to Make a Difference

Producing a vaccine for COVID-19 is of extreme importance but equally important is finding a cure for a 400-year infection called systemic racism.  We are proud to be associated with fellow health professionals who, after long hours of caring for patients battling coronavirus, go to the street to show their support of those protesting for equal opportunity and justice for all -- no more no less.  If the goal of HOSA-Future Health Professionals is saving lives, we understand that life is precious and we should respect, value, and treat each life accordingly.  HOSA-Future Health Professionals
