Payson High’s HOSA club is a great way to experience health occupations. HOSA stands for Health Occupations Students of America. The student leaders of the club are Keaton Evan, Sarah Wood, Sarah Brown, and Jens John.
HOSA club does a lot of things that give you good experiences. They volunteer at the hospital, do opening socials, go on hikes and many other fun things. They recently went to the Mountain View hospital to volunteer at the womens center.
“We went to help at the fair the hospital was hosting at the womens center. I got to talk to people who worked there and it was lots of fun,” said HOSA member Jenna Haroldsen.
On October 19 the HOSA club went on a hike to the summit of Mount Nebo.
“We chose to hike Mount Nebo because it is the 2nd highest in Utah and is hard to hike all the way to the summit. Most people don’t usually hike that far up,” said Mr. Blake.
HOSA does a lot of activities that promote being healthy and many activities that expose you to many different professions. On October 31 they are going to Apple Valley Vision to experience some of the things an Optometrist does.
