Meetings: Bi-weekly with GMs 5:15-6pm

Description: Special Events is a committee that plans HOSA’s two big events- ACHS in the fall and Trot for Tots in the spring. All Campus Healthcare Symposium (ACHS) is a campus-wide conference that brings together healthcare professionals from all fields (doctors, nurses, PAs, PT’s etc.) and pre-health students. The goal of ACHS is to give undergraduates insight into which fields they’d like to pursue and what will be the best fit for them. Trot for Tots is a charity 5k run that benefits the American Family Children’s Hospital. HOSA members, Madison students, and community members team up for a morning of running, food, and fun!
