PLANO (CBSDFW.COM) — A freshman at Clark High School of Plano has been nominated to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in February in Washington, DC.
Ryan French will represent Clark High School at the honors-only program for students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields, according to a press release.
French was nominated by Dr. Connie Mariano, the Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists.
The program is held from February 14 to 16. During that time, French and other nominated students will listen to lectures about leading medical research, receive advice from medical school officials, hear stories from patients, hear from other teen medical science prodigies; and learn about advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.
According to the release, the purpose of the 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.”
“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 Ryan French are our future and he deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give him.”
