Meyer to attend 3-day honors program

A Holgate High School senior knows what a part of her summer holds after graduation — she will be attending a three-day honors program in Boston for students entering the medical field.

Rebecca Meyer is a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, which will be held June 25-27. The event is an opportunity to hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners talk about leading medical research, receive advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans, hear stories from patients who are living medical miracles and learn about advances in medicine and medical technologies.
