Honor Student Chloe Bauman Nominated for The Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston, MA
Chloe Bauman, a Sophomore at Hillcrest Lutheran Academy of Fergus Falls, MN will be a Delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Massachusetts this summer.
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 event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.
Chloe's nomination letter 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 to represent Hillcrest Lutheran Academy based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
“I was born with a genetic anomaly that left me with chronic health issues so I’ve had extensive experience with doctors for as long as I can remember. For a while I was interested in neurosurgery, but I’m moving more towards fetal medicine.” Bauman continued, “If it wasn’t for the perinatologists that helped my mom during her pregnancy, it is likely that I wouldn’t have survived. It would be great to give back in that way.”
During the three-day Congress, Ms. Bauman will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about leading medical research; be given advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school; witness stories told by patients who are living medical miracles; be inspired by fellow teen medical science prodigies; and learn about cutting--edge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.
"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," said Richard Rossi, Executive Director, National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. "Focused, bright and determined students like Chloe Bauman are our future and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her."
The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was founded on the belief that we must identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career. The academy is based in Washington, D.C. and with offices in Boston, MA.
Bauman is the daughter of Travis and NeTia Bauman of Fergus Falls, MN.
