What is HOSA?
HOSA is the future health professionals group at Xenia High School for students who are completing the Biomedical Science Pathway. Students in the program complete the Biomedical Science courses that lay a solid foundation to pursue a medical career. The pathway provides immersive, hands-on opportunities for students to build specific medical skills, as well as learn to problem-solve and work collaboratively. The group participates in competitive events, and also focuses on related service projects, such as planning and running the blood drives held three times each year at XHS.
