SPOTLIGHT on students

Mattawan High School freshman Lilian Fytczyk

    MATTAWAN - Mattawan High School freshman Lilian Fytczyk will be a Delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, MA, on June 23-25, 2019.
    The Congress is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields. According to a press release provided by the Congress, 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 and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.”
    Fytcyck’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 Mattawan High School “based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.”
    During the three-day Congress, Fytczyk 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.
