The Medical Professions Education (MPE) program at National Park Technology Center announced the election of officers for the professional organization, Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA). The election was held Thursday, October 5. Students enrolled in the MPE program come to the college from area high schools to take classes which will lead to a career in the medical field.
HOSA–Future Health Professionals is the largest national organization operating in schools for students enrolled in health science and biomedical sciences programs and serving those interested in pursuit of careers in health and biomedical professions.

This student-led organization provides opportunities for students to practice and refine their academic, technical, leadership, and teamwork skills to achieve seamless transition from education to careers.
Students have the opportunity to schedule classes at the center during three time slots throughout the day during their junior and senior years. Listed below are the HOSA student officers, their elected position, and the home high school they attend. The officers are listed by the time of day they are at the center.
