Mariah Gifford, a sophomore at Sidney High School, is a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, Mass., June 25-27.
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 this 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.
Gifford was nominated by Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists Dr. Robert Darling, to represent New York based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
The academy offers free services and programs to students who want to be physicians or go into medical science, some of which 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 more.
