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

PRESS RELEASE:

VILLA PARK — Mya Love Griesbaum, a Freshman at Willowbrook High School of Oakbrook Terrace 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. The purpose of this 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.

Mya Love'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 IL based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

During the three-day Congress, Mya Love Griesbaum 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 cuttingedge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology.

“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, Founder, National Academy of
Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. “Focused, bright and determined students like Mya Love Griesbaum are our future and she deserves all the mentoring and guidance we can give her.”

The Academy offers free services and programs to students who want to be physicians or go into medical science. Some of the services and programs the Academy offers are online social networks through which
future doctors and medical scientists can communicate; opportunities for students to be guided and mentored by physicians and medical students; and communications for parents and students on college
acceptance and finances, skills acquisition, internships, career guidance and much more.

The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists was founded on the belief that we must identify prospective medical talent at the earliest possible age and help these students acquire the
necessary experience and skills to take them to the doorstep of this vital career. Based in Washington, D.C. and with offices in Boston, MA, the Academy was chartered as a nonpartisan, taxpaying institution
to help address this crisis by working to identify, encourage and mentor students who wish to devote their lives to the service of humanity as physicians, medical scientists.
