Health Professions High School students recently competed in the 2015 State Leadership Conference sponsored by HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America).

The competition was fierce: More than 2,000 students participated from across California. Health Professions students displayed networking and empathy skills, attended workshops and completed Courtesy Corps volunteer work during the conference.

Six students were named finalists in two competition categories:

  • Izza Villarino, Joaquin Aguinaga, Angie Namboand and Christina Mendoza were finalists in the Health Care Issues Exam competition.
  • Kristine Naidu and Karina Rios were finalists in the Healthy Lifestyle Competition.
