WANTAGE — High Point Regional High School sent two of its top students—12th grader Samantha Jiatz and 11th grader Jacob Carter, to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, Massachusetts, in June.

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

The students were nominated by Dr. Robert Darling, medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, based on their academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine.

During the three-day Congress, Jiatz and Carter joined students from across the country and heard Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners talk about leading medical research, were given advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school, witnessed stories told by patients who are living medical and learned 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, executive director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. "Focused, bright and determined students like Samantha JiatzJacob Carter are our future.”
