 Despite the weather, our annual SC Health Science Educators Professional Development Conference was a success! 

Thanks to Mother Nature our conference started off with a bang. Early registration was held Wednesday evening for the folks that braved the beginning of the winter weather.  We had a delayed start on Thursday, January 30, due to the icy conditions.  We began the day with registration and warm coffee and muffins.  A little later we officially began the conference with a wonderful luncheon. The executive committee had opening remarks and announcements with adjustments to our schedule due to the cancellation of our opening speaker. About 50% of the conference registrants were in attendance.

At the close of our luncheon, the 2013-14 SC Health Science Educators Division winners were announced and awarded plaques:

  • Outstanding New Career and Technical –Health Science Divison – Michelle Campbell
  • Career and Technology – Health Science Division-Lifetime Achievement – Janet Hodge

As the day moved on, we had many more conference registrants arriving. We had about 90% of conference registrants arrive and check in by the end of the day Thursday. We were thrilled at the attendance considering the weather conditions.

Our Thursday afternoon general sessions went off with only minor challenges. The afternoon sessions included:

·         Implementing the National Health Science Assessment

·         Nurse Aide Training Program

·         Project HOPE

·         VibraStim

                                                                                               

 

 

Friday, January 31, started with a continental breakfast, welcome and announcements.  For the first half of the day, conference participants were treated to the energetic Michelle Deck with a lot of ideas to take back to the classroom.

Our Friday general sessions included:

  • Creative Teaching Strategies, “It’s All About Engagement”
  • Dual Credit, TAP Exams and Advanced Placement
  • Using the IPad to facilitate Pharmacy for Medical Careers
  • Master Teacher Institute Review
  • HOSA and Health Science Updates

Saturday, February 1, began with a full southern breakfast followed by our silent auction drawings to fund the HSE/HOSA scholarships that are given to students at our HOSA State Leadership Conference in March. 

We followed this by having the business meeting for SC HSE where there were two positions up for nominations.  Nominees, spoke and the members voted.  The new officers are listed below.

Before our SC HSE business meeting we welcomed a speaker named Tonya Brown who is a local television celebrity in Florence SC.  Her Keynote was titled: “Health Science Educators: You Have the Power to Change Lives and Impact Career Paths”

Everyone quite enjoyed listening to Tonya speak and encourage us in our profession of leading students to make career choices.

 

 

We also had the privilege of meeting Tonya’s husband, Charlie Brown, a former NFL player for the Washington Redskins who spoke to us about concussion awareness and shared his story down the path of diagnosing and living with the aftermath of a concussion.

 

Round Table Sessions on Saturday included:

·         Teaching Pet First Aid and CPR

·         Online Portfolios and Notebooks

·         HOSA FUNdraising

·         Incorporating Sochi Into Lesson Plans

·         Creatively Applying Literacy in Health Science

 

 

Approximately ninety health science teachers enjoyed the networking and professional development opportunity again this year. Five vendors provided their latest curriculum resources in our exhibition area on Thursday and Friday. Upon completion of an online survey, conference participants received an electronic certificate of participation that included contact hours that can be used for certification renewal points.
