The HOSA event consists of various types of medical procedures and career-related focus areas.
“It’s a medical club. You should probably join if you are interested in the medical field, it’s a way to learn a lot about it by doing different things and it just kinda helps you learn a little more about it,” Zeweke said.
The EMT class, lead by Mrs. Pile, assists Romeo High School students towards their life career in the medical field. This program provides many opportunities for students to understand and learn about the medical field.
