Lincoln-Way West student nominated for program

Samuel Duckworth
Samuel Duckworth

Samuel Duckworth, a junior at Lincoln-Way West will be a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, Massachusetts from June 23 to June 25, 2019.

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

The purpose is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country who aspire to be physicians or medical scientists and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.

Samuel'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 Illinois based on his academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

During the three-day congress, Duckworth 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.
