Kimball High School has a medical club called Hosa, which stands for Health

Occupations Students of America. Hosa is a club and school elective made for future health professionals

interested in the medical field. It is a great opportunity to experience what it is like to be in the real world,

with scenarios as real as a health professional.


Every year Hosa hosts a conference where students from all over the U.S. and

other countries come to compete in events and socialize. This year, the

conference was held in Sacramento, and it lasted a total of four days.  Over

3,000 students attended, but only a top five qualify. Then those five will got to

Orlando, Florida to compete internationally.


There are different categories that students compete in. During the events,

students are given a certain medical scenario and they must explain and act out

what they would do. Then the judges determine who will advance to the next



A sophomore at Kimball High, Morsal Shir, attended the conference. She said

that she very much enjoyed her experience going, and would definitely go again.

Morsal finds the conference very competitive and intense, but a lot of fun at the

same time. “Hosa brings you closer to people and friends, being there and being

involved, makes you feel like you matter.” “Hosa made me feel like a real adult

and opened my eyes to new things and opportunities.”

Morsal says that she is planning on being involved with Hosa for a long time,

and wants to become a president in Hosa.
