National HOSA Week
November 3-9, 2019
(HOSA week is designated the first full week of November starting on Sunday through Saturday. If your chapter prefers to celebrate HOSA week during CTE month in February, that is fine; or, your chapter might choose another week that is in better alignment with other school activities. The importance of HOSA week is the recognition of others.)
