Empower Your Students—and Take the Workload Off You
As HOSA’s Premiere Service Project, Be The Match provides the necessary resources for your chapter members to take ownership of the project and take the workload off of you, giving you more time in your day. This workshop will provide you with the information you need on how to get your students started on the project and how your students can make a life-changing impact for years to come. Join Be The Match representatives for a look at the different ways your chapter can make a life-saving difference. Attendees will also have the opportunity to provide feedback about ways to improve our partnership.

Be The Match and You
When mission-driven organizations like HOSA and Be The Match partner together with a common purpose, magic happens—and anything is possible. This fun and interactive session will help you understand how Be The Match saves lives through cellular therapy, why matching blood stem cells is not the same as matching blood type, and what diseases can be treated by a blood stem cell transplant. You’ll also learn the steps to host your own swabbing event in your community and how to optimize your chapter’s fundraising. Everyone can help save more lives—regardless of location or age.
