Junior Nominated for The Congress of Future Medical Leaders
Alexis Degreenia-Collins ’19 of Sheffield will be a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, MA, on June 25-27, 2018. 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 Congress, to provide a path, plan, and resources to help them reach their goal.
Alexis DeGreenia-Collins was nominated by Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and the Science Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to represent Vermont based on her academic achievement, leadership potential, and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
