Abby Laskowski

Hi friends! My name is Abby and I am your Vice President for the 2021-2022 school year! This year I will be a senior in my second year in the Nursing Program. I’m super passionate about labor and delivery and hope to one day open my own Midwifery practice. I have been in HOSA since my freshman year, so this will be fifth (and final ) year with this wonderful club! My favorite parts of HOSA have been the opportunities offered through the club and the relationships built with students who share the same passion for healthcare as me. As Vice President, I hope to provide our members with informative resources to allow them to be the best healthcare providers they can be!

I can't wait to have an amazing year with you all!

Alina Hampton

Hello everyone! My name is Alina Hampton and I am a senior here at UW-Madison. I am majoring in Biology with a certificate in Global Health and hoping to become a pediatrician one day! This is my fourth year in HOSA, and this year I am the President. I believe that the best thing about HOSA is that it opens up your opportunities. Without HOSA, I wouldn’t be able to experience a job shadow with a UW physician or become a certified phlebotomist. HOSA allows you to explore your options in the Pre-Health world and it’s a great place to be!
