    • This week, Wellness Week, HOSA would like to talk about something that seems to be everywhere these days--- vaping. There's a lot of wrong information out there about vaping devices. For example, if you have been told that the aerosol is just harmless water vapor, you need to know that's not true. The vapor actually includes some dangerous chemicals, including nicotine and others that are known to cause cancer. There's plenty to learn about vaping and JUULing, so listen for more facts on the announcements all week! Also, stop by HOSA's table at the Wellness Fair this Friday for more information!

    SPOTLIGHT HONOREE FOR BLACK HISTORY MONTH

    In honor of Black History month, we are spotlighting three African American Women who were portrayed in a movie called “HIDDEN FIGURES”:  Mary Jackson, Dorothy Vaughn and Katherine Goble.  These three black female mathematicians worked at NASA in the 1960’s and were responsible for coming up with the complex math equations it took for John Glenn, a famous astronaut, to orbit the earth successfully.

    We should celebrate and emulate these women in science.

    In honor of Black History Month the mindful quote of the day is by  Michelle Obama - “Plenty of folks—including me and my husband—started out with very little. But with a good education and a lot of hard work, anything is possible.”

Diaspora, meaning people of African descent living all over the world. Black History month is celebrated in February in the United States and Canada, while in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom it is observed in October.

    Our Spotlight Honoree today is Dr. Mae Jemison
