Plainfield East High School juniors Katelyn Schreiber and Anthony Bryan, and Plainfield North High School junior Haley West have been nominated to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders conference in Washington D.C., from February 14-16, 2014. 

The trio makes five District 202 students to be invited to the prestigious event. PNHS senior Alyssa Caliendo and PEHS senior Lauren Ransom were also nominated earlier this year. 

Schreiber wants to study trauma surgery, orthopedic surgery or pediatric oncology. Bryan wants to study psychiatry. West wants to study neurology.

Ransom, Caliendo, Schreiber, Bryan and West are among about 2,500 students nationwide expected to attend the event. The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields.

Prospective Congress attendees are nominated by teachers, principals or doctors associated with the program based on their academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

The Congress is intended to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students nationwide who want to be doctors or medical scientists. 

During the three-day event, students will hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners discuss medical issues; get advice from top medical school officials about what to expect in medical school; hear stories about medical procedures; learn from teen medical prodigies; and learn about cutting-edge medical technologies.

The Congress is presented by the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists in Washington D.C.

The Academy formed to help identify, encourage and mentor students who want to serve humanity as doctors, medical scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians.
