Why Does HOSA Need Partnerships?

HOSA is committed to preparing future healthcare professionals. Our members will someday be your members, employees, or customers. In order to provide the right opportunities for HOSA members, we need to form collaborative partnerships with the healthcare community.

Eric Cockrell, MSN, RN, CHES, CNOR and Lexington Medical Center

Eric Cockrell has been a valuable partner to HOSA since 2004.  His active participation has been multi-faceted.  He has been involved as a health science teacher and HOSA advisor in the past but currently serves as a mentor and educator at Lexington Medical Center.
Eric serves as a SC HOSA board professional member, as state officer nominating committee team member, and the state conference judge coordinator.
Eric’s involvement with HOSA keeps his pulse on students’ interests and needs.  With this knowledge he creates a mutually beneficial relationship between students and the Lexington Medical Center, as well as advancement in the Secondary and Post-Secondary HOSA fields of study.
We appreciate Lexington Medical Center’s support for Eric’s vision, leadership and commitment to HOSA.

Congratulations Eric!
