VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Local students are preparing for careers in health fields.

Ivy Tech Community College hosted the Future Health Professional’s mock competition. It's part of the Health Occupations Students of America or HOSA group.

100 high school students practiced testing for health and medical skills. There were also interview and presentation sessions.

We talked to one student who is in her second year with the program.

“I would like to major in health sciences with a concentration in public health, I would've never even imagined or experience public health without HOSA,” explained Olivia Dillion, senior at Terre Haute South. “After doing my past public health project for HOSA on the Zika virus, I realized I truly love it. I want to go on to be a physician’s assistant.”

Friday’s event was in preparation for a state competition in April.
