Alyssia Ahhaitty, a rising 10th grader at Mt. Juliet High School, was named a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders on June 25-27 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. The purpose of the 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.
Dr. Robert Darling, medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, nominated Ahhaitty to represent Tennessee based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
