Domingo Lora Medina, Jayda Dewillis, Amanda Bourdier, and Kennia Castillo won the silver medal at the RI State HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America) Leadership Conference. Their competition was community awareness and their focus was organ transplant. For their project, students researched current trends, need, misconceptions and ways to educate the public on this important topic, and presented their findings in front community groups. At the state conference they had to present their project before a group of judges who work in the community in various health fields.
Highlander is working to send the team to Orlando to compete at the International HOSA Leadership Conference that is attended by high school and college students from across the US and 5 other countries!
In addition to our medal winners, Highlander also has 7 other students competing in other events that included CPR and First Aid, medical reading, health career display, and health education. Watch out for these student leaders next year!
