Volunteering Clubs

Shelby Jaunal, Staff Writer

Health Occupations Students of America

Purpose of Club-Students can learn about different ways to get involved in health promotion. They can work together to grow as a leader while using healthy behaviors. “You’re in medical school, even in residency, and it’s for those students to have opportunities to work together on health promotion activities where they learn to become leaders to work effectively as a team and to promote healthy behaviors that we want to see in our patients. So even before you really have any actual health care training, those are things that you are going to need as a healthcare provider.” says Mrs. Clinger.
