HUNTSVILLE – Annclaire Shultz, a Huntsville High School honors student, has been nominated to serve as the Alabama delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders. The annual conference is June 21-23 at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell.
Shultz, a sophomore, was nominated by Dr. Mario Capecchi, winner of the Nobel Prize in Medicine and the science director at the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. She was chosen based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.
During the three-day Congress, Shultz will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science recipients discuss leading medical research. The delegates will be given advice from Ivy League and medical school deans on what to expect in medical school and witness stories from patients.
The NAFPMS offers free services and programs to students who want to become physicians or go into medical science.
