Raytown High School student selected for Congress of Future Medical Leaders

Raytown High School senior Sydni Caw will serve as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Lowell, Massachusetts, June 24-26. 

The Congress is an honors program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into the medical field. 

Caw was selected 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 Missouri based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity and the field of medicine. 

During the three-day event, Caw will join other students from around the country to hear from Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners as they talk about leading medical research and receive advice from Ivy League and top medical school deans on what to expect in medical school. 

After the event, Caw will be part of an online network where she can connect with physicians and medical students in networking and mentoring opportunities, as well as, gain access to additional resources for future opportunities related to the medical field. 

After graduation, Caw plans to continue her education and play volleyball at Ottawa University in Ottawa, Kansas where she will be majoring in Pre-Medical Science.
