Lucy Knapp and Alyssa Pemberton, incoming juniors at Summit Christian Academy, recently returned from the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, an honors program in Boston for students who aspire to be physicians or work in medical research.
In a news release, Knapp described the gathering as “very educational, informative and eye opening in relation to the medical field.”
“The speakers gave insight to cutting-edge research and opportunities available in the field and how becoming a physician can make such a unique difference in people’s lives,” she said. “It also helped me understand all of the hard work and dedication it will take to pursue this dream.”
