Upcoming Free Wednesday Webinars
March 9th - 3:00 CST - Introduction to Health Science & Careers
MN HOSA & STEM Fuse will present new and exciting ways to engage students from 6th grade through college with health science and careers. Health professions continue to be one of the fastest-growing fields in the U.S., yet students still are not aware of the myriad of careers available to them. MN HOSA & STEM Fuse aim to educate and prepare the next generation of healthcare workers through technology, skills practice, knowledge-based tests, and more. Learn how you can bring health science pathways to life in your school!

Resources for Teachers
The focus of the HASPI curriculum has been to develop health pathway programs by incorporating healthcare and medical concepts into required core courses, such as Science and English. Through collaboration with education and industry partners, HASPI has developed labs, activities, and modules that will support the implementation of the Medical Biology, Medical Chemistry, Medical Anatomy & Physiology, Vaccination and Immunity, and middle school Earth, Life, and Physical Science curriculum for middle and high school programs.
The main goals of HASPI are to:
increase health and medical career awareness.
improve science proficiency in middle school, high school, and college courses.
strengthen student transition to post-secondary programs and improve retention rates.
Registration is FREE and so are the curriculum resources. Register here and the password needed for the HASPI Curriculum page appears immediately!
