HOSA HAS TEAMED UP WITH SQUADS ABROAD TO CREATE THE LARGEST HIGH SCHOOL MOVEMENT TO IMPROVE CHILD HEALTH OUTCOMES IN UNDER-RESOURCED COMMUNITIES ABROAD.

HOSA AND SQUADS ABROAD

Squads Abroad provides HOSA members accessible opportunities to develop real-world health experience while building valuable cultural competency skills that build stronger global citizens.

Guided by Squads Abroad’s experienced local team of health professionals, HOSA members are invited to participate in a Global Health Squads to provide medical access to children in under resourced communities abroad while building water/sanitation infrastructure in schools to prevent disease. The home-base model provides safe and private accommodations for HOSA members to enjoy healthy authentic meals, relax after a meaningful day of volunteering, and reflect with your club on all the amazing experiences you’ve shared.

Global Health Squads is an unmatched leadership opportunity for your HOSA chapter to tangibly improve health outcomes in under resourced communities.
