The HOSA Motto
The HOSA Motto was adopted by the delegate assembly at the first HOSA National Leadership Conference in April in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The original motto, as adopted by the delegate assembly in 1978, was "The Hand of Youth Mold the Health of Tomorrow." This was presented by the Florida State Association of HOSA.  In recognition of post-secondary student members, the world "youth" was changed to "HOSA" in 1979 at the second HOSA National Leadership Conference in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
