For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — On June 22-25, four students from Marshfield High School competed at the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) International Leadership Conference in Nashville, Tennessee. This group was part of over 9,000 students from every state in the nation, including international representation as well. The students were exposed to a wealth of knowledge about careers in health care.
The students earned the right to compete at this conference because of their strong presence at the Wisconsin State HOSA Convention in April. Roma Shah competed in the epidemiology event, which is part of the emergency preparedness category. Maddy Scheibe competed in the sports medicine event. Nikita Gonugunta competed in the human growth and development knowledge test event. Aman Bassi competed in the medical photography event. Bassi’s presentation earned him placement in the top 10 students at the convention.
The Marshfield High School HOSA organization, along with advisor RaeAnn Leonhardt, expressed thanks to Marshfield Clinic for the support and donation to allow this trip to happen.
