Carolina Lopez, a junior at Palmer Trinity School, was recently selected to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, where she will represent her school and the state of Florida.
The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists created the Congress of Future Medical Leaders to mentor the country’s top high school students who plan to study medicine. The honors-only program includes students who have earned a 3.5 GPA or above.
During the annual event, Carolina will speak with medical school deans, Ivy League academic leaders, scientists and patients who have received innovative medical treatment. She will also view live surgeries and learn about the latest diagnostic tools.
