Bronte Ray heading to medical congress
MADISON – Bronte Ray, a senior at James Clemens High School, will serve as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders.
The conference will meet in Lowell, Mass. on June 25-27. An honors-only program, the congress targets high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields.
The event will honor and inspire the country’s top students and provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.
Dr. Robert Darling nominated Ray. Darling is Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. Darling based his decision on Ray’s academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
During the three-day congress, Ray will join students to hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners discuss leading medical research. The honor students will receive advice from deans of Ivy League and top medical schools on expectations of medical students.
Patients who are ‘living miracles’ will tell their stories. Teenage prodigies in medical science will speak. Delegates will learn about cutting-edge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.
“This is a crucial time in America when we need more doctors and medical scientists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” Richard Rossi said. Rossi is Executive Director of National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists.
“Focused, bright and determined students like Bronte Ray are our future. She deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her,” Rossi said.
The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists believes professionals must identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and assist students in acquiring essential experience and skills.
The academy has headquarters in Washington, D.C. and offices in Boston, Mass. For more information, visit FutureDocs.com.
