Denzel Akuffo, a student at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School, was chosen as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, Massachusetts.

An honors-only program for high schools students, the congress is designed for students who want to become physicians or want to enter into medical research fields.

Akuffo was nominated by Dr. Robert Darling, medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists.

During the three-day program, Akuffo joined other students from across the U.S. and heard talks from Noble Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners.
