Sierra Cisneros, a sophomore at Questa High School, was selected to be a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders scheduled for June 25-27 in Lowell, Massachusetts.
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 press release about Cisneros' selection. The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who want to to be physicians or medical scientists. After the event, the congress provides a path, plan and resources to help the delegates reach their goal.
Cisneros was nominated by Dr. Robert Darling, the medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, to represent Questa High School based on her "academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine," according to the press release.
During the three-day congress, Cisneros will join students from across the country and hear Nobel laureates and National Medal of Science winners talk about leading medical research. The delegates will be given advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school and be inspired by fellow teen medical science prodigies. They'll also 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," said Richard Rossi, executive director of National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, in a statement. "Focused, bright and determined students like Sierra Cisneros are our future and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her."
The academy offers free services and programs to students who want to be physicians or go into medical science. Some of the services and programs the academy offers are online social networks through which future doctors and medical scientists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by physicians and medical students; and communications for parents and students on college acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance and much more.
The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was founded on the belief that prospective medical talent must be identified at the earliest possible age and helped in acquiring the experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career.
