Plainfield South freshman chosen for Congress of Future Doctors

  Plainfield South High School freshman Rory Lavery has been nominated to attend the virtual Congress of Future Medical Leaders conference on March 20-21, 2021.

Lavery plans to study pre-med in college and plans to be an anesthesiologist.

The conference is typically held in-person in Boston, Massachusetts. However, it will be held online this year because of the pandemic.

The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields.

Teachers, principals or doctors associated with the program nominate prospective Congress attendees based on academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

The Congress is intended to honor, inspire, motivate, and direct the top students nationwide who want to be doctors or medical scientists.

During the two-day event, students will hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners discuss medical issues; get advice from top medical school officials about what to expect in medical school; hear stories about medical procedures; learn from teen medical prodigies; and learn about cutting-edge medical technologies.

The Congress is presented by the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists in Washington D.C.

The Academy formed to help identify, encourage, and mentor students who want to serve humanity as doctors, medical scientists, technologists, engineers, and mathematicians.
