Central Tech takes HOSA State Leadership Conference

Central Tech participated in the 2023 Oklahoma HOSA-Future Health Professionals State Leadership Conference, formerly known as Health Occupations Students of America. The event was held April 17-19, at the Embassy Suites Conference and Convention Center in Norman, OK.
