Health Occupational Students of America Receive Funds from Littleton Regional Hospital

May 25, 2012

Littleton, NH - Students from the Health Science Technologies class at the Hugh J. Gallen Regional Career & Technical Center at Littleton High School received a $2,000 scholarship from Warren West, CEO at Littleton Regional Hospital. Fourteen students will be attending the Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA) Conference in Orlando, Florida in June.

As part of their Health Science Technologies curriculum, the teens competed against 400 students from 17 schools across New Hampshire in the areas of Pharmacology, CPR/First Aid, Homemaker Health Aide, Human Growth & Development, Creative Problem Solving, Medical Math, Prepared Speaking, Health Awareness Poster, Health Education and Nursing Assisting. The students that placed in the top three for the state competition have the opportunity to compete in the National HOSA Conference. This year, 14 students from the Hugh J. Gallen Regional Career & Technical Center will be traveling to Orlando to compete at the national level. The National HOSA Conference is a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to participate and compete with over 7,000 future health care workers from across the country.

The Health Science Technologies Program at the Hugh J. Gallen Regional Career & Technical Center is a two-year course of study offered to juniors and seniors interested in a health care career. Warren West, CEO at LRH presented the check to William Demers, RN, Health Science Teacher and HOSA Advisor at LHS. Mr. Demers stated, "We are very grateful for the sincere interest and support that all of our students receive from Littleton Regional Healthcare. Our program would not be successful, in assisting our highly motivated students, without the commitment from area healthcare providers. For the past eleven years, since our programs inception, LRH has been continuously supported and committed to students as our future healthcare professionals. Many of the students would not be able to attend the HOSA National Conference without this financial assistance. The national conference experience will allow them to network with students across the country that are following a similar path and continue to inspire them to pursue their health career goals."
