Medical camp attendees

Two Sheffield Area High School students have been invited to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders.

The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists will host sophomore Tessa Anderson and junior Selena Foster at the three-day Congress in Lowell, Mass.

“The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields,” according to a release from the National Academy. “The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate, and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan, and resources to help them reach their goal.”

Anderson and Foster will join students “from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners walk about leading medical research; be given advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school; witness stories told by patients who are living medical miracles; be inspired by fellow teen medical science prodigies; and lear about cutting-edge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology,” according to the release.
