MAHS CTE Faculty Member to Speak at National Health Science Conference


MOUNT AIRY, September 19, 2019 -- Last spring, Lynn Snow, Mount Airy High School faculty member and advisor for the school’s Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) chapter, was asked by the Health Science Education consultant at the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to lead a concurrent session at the 2019 NC Career and Technical Education Summer Conference in Greensboro. Her target audience was high school Pharmacy Technician teachers, and her lesson plan included helpful hints and ideas on how to augment the on-line lessons used throughout the state for the Pharmacy Technician course. 

Subsequently, a member of the National Health Science Conference management team recommended Mrs. Snow to speak at the PassAssured session at the 2019 National Health Science Conference. PassAssured is one of two vendors who provide the Pharmacy Technician training programs used in North Carolina public high schools.

After discussing the opportunity with MACS administrators, Mrs. Snow accepted the invitation and will be traveling (all-expenses paid) to Saint Louis, Missouri, November 6-8, 2019, to share "a little bit of Mayberry" with the national health science community. 

At Mount Airy High School, Lynn Snow is a Pharmacy Technician Instructor, Certified Nursing Assistant Instructor, Health Science Instructor, HOSA Advisor, and also serves as NC-HOSA Board of Directors Immediate Past Chair. Principal Jason Dorsett shared, “Mrs. Snow is passionate about health education and most importantly, her students. She explores innovative ways to provide the very best for MAHS. We are very proud of this invitation and honored that Mrs. Snow will be presenting at the conference.”
