Woodgrove High School 11th grade student Cameron Depee is getting a head start on a career in medicine.
Depee will serve as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, June 23-25 in Lowell, MA. The honors-only program offered through the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists helps to motivate and direct high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields to reach their goals by providing resources and connections.
Mario Capecchi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and the science director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, supported Depee’s entrance into the program based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity. She will hear from Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners, get advice from medical school deans, hear patient accounts of medical miracles and learn about medical advances during the three-day event.
“This is a crucial time in America when we need more doctors and medical scientists who are even better prepared for a future that is changing exponentially,” stated Richard Rossi, executive director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. “Focused, bright and determined students like Cameron Depee are our future, and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her.”
