Three student groups from the School of Wellbeing Sciences at the College of Louisiana Monroe dominated the Louisiana Health and fitness Occupations Learners of America (HOSA) and Anatomage Digital Collegiate Anatomy and Physiology Event.
ULM’s teams from the University of Allied Wellness, two in Overall health Studies and one particular in Radiologic Technological know-how, gained first, runner-up, and 3rd destinations in the contest. Teams from during the condition competed in the digital event.
The Health and fitness Research program’s two groups represented the health care terminology course taught by Jodi Bower, DHA, assistant professor of Well being Scientific studies. The staff from the Radiologic Technological innovation method ended up pupils of Rebecca Hamm, assistant professor of Radiologic Technological know-how.
“The coolest matter about this level of competition was that all a few ULM groups gained a digital, fingers-on, immersive working experience with the Anatomage Table and competed to take a look at their understanding of anatomy, specially linked with the muscular, digestive, respiratory, skeletal, and cardiovascular units,” explained Higher education of Wellness Sciences Dean Don Simpson, Ph.D.
Steadily eliminating rival universities, all 3 ULM teams manufactured it into the Louisiana Collegiate Remaining 4 Round. In the finish, it was Warhawk vs. Warhawk when the ULM groups – Health and fitness Reports and Radiologic Technology – faced each individual other in the Louisiana Collegiate Championship Spherical.
The winning team from health care terminology provided Ambrosia Davis (Nursing-junior.), Sharon Jerono (Overall health Studies Management/Marketing-senior.), Abbigail Riordan (Pre-RT-freshman), and Moriah Houston (Pre-Speech Language Pathology-junior).
“It’s a testimony to the quality of education gained by the Faculty of Overall health Sciences that this interprofessional staff of pupils designed it via 4 rounds of opposition and emerged as match champions,” Simpson said.
The championship runner-up team from Radiologic Know-how was comprised of Blake Stone (RT-junior), Sydney Rinehart (RT, junior.), Lindsey Schexnayder (RT-senior.), Bree Mayeux (RT-senior), and Samaria Pratt (RT-senior).
The 3rd-position team from the medical terminology course was built up of Joshua Pennebaker (Kinesiology-senior), Latisa Jenkins (Biology-senior), Elizabeth Mathews (Pre-RT-sophomore), and Alison Kidwell (Pre-Speech Language Pathology-sophomore).
HOSA is an international scholar firm acknowledged by the U.S. Dept. of Schooling and the Overall health Science Training Division of Association for Professions and Engineering Training.
“HOSA is an tutorial resource that has delivered alternatives in and exposure to occupations in health care and is the explanation that quite a few of our pupils chosen a vocation in the wellness sciences,” Simpson explained. “In addition to pupil involvement, several of our college keep on being energetic in HOSA, and several at present serve on the board of administrators for the Louisiana HOSA.”
The ULM College of Wellness Science is at the moment establishing a pupil HOSA firm chapter for the spring 2021 semester.
