A Brenham High School senior has been selected to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in March.
Maria Solis will join students from across the country in attending the virtual conference on March 26th and 27th.
The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields.
During the two-day Congress, Solis and other students will hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners talk about leading medical research and receive advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school. They will also hear stories from patients who are considered living medical miracles, visit with fellow teen medical science prodigies, and learn about advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.
Solis’ nomination was signed 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. She will represent Texas based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve in the field of medicine.
