Throughout the year, we learn about healthcare including: medical terms, CPR and First Aid. We compete at the State and National level. The competitions test our knowledge in the healthcare field including CPR skills, Public speaking, and H.O.S.A Bowl which tests our medical vocabulary. We also participate in non-profit fundraisers. This year we raised $5000 for Breast Cancer and $800 for Autism.
Breast cancer is a cancer that starts in the cells of the breast. Worldwide, breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer after lung cancer (10.4% of all cancer incidence, both sexes counted) and the fifth most common cause of cancer death Autism is a brain development disorder that impairs social interaction and communication, and causes restricted and repetitive behavior, all starting before a child is three years old.
