Batavia Career and Technical Education Center (CTE) students recently attended the New York State HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) Leadership Conference, which was held in Syracuse earlier this month.
Six Health Dimensions students participated in this event, which included more than 300 students who represented New York State schools and BOCES. As a result of this competition, five of the students qualified to attend the 42nd annual national HOSA Conference, which will be held in Orlando, Fla., in June.
The students, their competitions, and their placements are:
- Kyra Konopski, a junior from Le Roy CS – two awards -- First Place in Nutrition; Second Place -- Healthy Living
- Shelby Bridge, a junior from Byron-Bergen CS – Second Place -- Personal Skills
- Brianna Gilliat, a senior from Elba CS – Third Place -- Healthy Living
- Mia Hampton, a junior from Le Roy CS – Third Place -- Home Health Aid
- Faith Jones, a senior from Caledonia-Mumford CS -- Third Place -- Personal Skills
The Health Dimensions Program is offered at the Batavia CTE Center. Health Dimensions students engage in a challenging hands-on approach in the health care field. Participants experience and provide the "human side" of client care at local health care facilities.
All Health Dimensions students spend time in local facilities working collaboratively with staff members, residents, and patients. Students may choose to shadow medical professionals from many disciplines.
