Minot High School Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA)
The current and projected shortage of healthcare professionals in North Dakota and across the nation is creating a critical demand for an increased healthcare workforce. HOSA – Future Healthcare Professionals (HOSA) is an international student organization recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Education (HSE) Division of the Association for Career and Technical Education. It is the largest organization to serve students who plan to pursue a healthcare career.
Trinity Health Foundation provided a grant to assist students from Minot High’s HOSA to attend and compete in the 2019 International Leadership Conference.
Sometimes having a loved one admitted to the hospital may not be a visitor’s only concern. There are times when family members, especially those who need to be here for several days, do not have enough money for food. That is where a Generosity Card can make a big difference. The idea for these cards was conceived by an employee who noticed family members who needed something to eat but did not have funds. As Case Managers meet with families to assess their needs, they provide these cards, funded by Trinity Health Foundation, and help those in need receive a nutritious meal.
Stuffed Animals for Children
Trinity Health Foundation provides stuffed animals that various departments within Trinity Health give to children who are coming in for appointments. The animals can help brighten the day of a child who may be nervous or scared about their medical appointment.
