Louisiana HOSA hosting three-day health conference in Lafayette

Posted: Updated:

Future health professionals from across the state are in Lafayette for the Louisiana HOSA conference.

The conference opened Thursday evening at David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy.

Over the next two days, students will compete in health-related events, like sports medicine, pharmacology and nursing.

The organization is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and leaders say they want to inspire other students to pursue careers in medical fields.

"They don't realize there are so many other things they can do out there that are health related. Something like this brings in all kinds of different people, so they can get an idea of what health careers are and the different things they can do," said Brooke Voorhies with Louisiana HOSA.
