HOSA Members Invited to Attend AMSUS Federal Health: A Global Vision Beginning in Your Community

Advisors: This will be a great resource for advisors to use in your in- person or virtual classroom. Great lessons to help you prepare your students for careers in the healthcare field.

Are your students interested in a career in Public Health? Would you like an opportunity to learn and collaborate with health professionals focused on advancing federal, public, and global health? If so, this is an unbelievable opportunity you will not want them to miss. 
As they explore careers as a physician, nurse, physician assistant, dentist or dental technician, pharmacist or pharmacy tech, psychologist, health care executive or whatever your medical career dream may be, you will have the opportunity to learn about innovative medical advances and superior practices in patient care and health administration as you attend the 2020 AMSUS Annual Meeting VIRTUAL.
AMSUS, The Society of Federal Health Professionals, is an educational association that supports the federal health professional and honors the legacy of federal medicine’s tremendous impact in advancing and improving health for all Americans and international coalition partners.
HOSA-Future Health Professionals has had the opportunity to be represented the last several years at the AMSUS Annual Meetings and the feedback has been tremendous.
Dates:   December 6-10, 2020
Cost:    HOSA members are complimentary guests of AMSUS
         What is great about the 2020 Virtual AMSUS Annual Meeting, HOSA members can experience all breakout sessions and poster presentations. And AMSUS is making the platform available until December 24. 
Opening: Monday, December 7 at 10 AM EST.

Click on the below button to find the schedule of events along with the format. Additional details are being finalized to assist you and your students in preparation for the competitions. The Competitive Event team is looking forward to conducting quality experiences. Be sure to check out the new competitive event - Health Informatics along with the state only competition in Medical Art. Please contact me with any questions.
Membership/Affiliation Details
As students affiliate this year we area asking them to provide an email address that is not a school email address. We found many students who competed at the Virtual ILC could not be easily be reached via email as they had used a school email address that was either deactivated over the summer or inaccessible since the student was not in the school facility. Also many schools have firewalls that will block incoming emails outside their particular system, thus making it difficult to share important messages and updates regarding HOSA and Tallo.
Send an email to Jim Scott to sign up another advisor or your administrators that may benefit from this weekly newsletter.
