Future leaders in health and medicine flock to Brandeis

By Julian Cardillo '14

Hundreds of rising high school juniors and seniors ventured to Brandeis from June 23-30 for the annual Global Youth Summit on the Future of Medicine, which brings students who have a passion for medicine and science together with one another, as well as doctors, professors, researchers and government officials in the medical field.

During the program, students attend lectures, work in labs and participate in workshops that offer insights into the future of the healthcare industry, and hone leadership, networking, public speaking and collaboration skills.

“I like how we get so much professional experience in a short amount of time, how you can learn a lot and have fun,” said Libby Jin of Newton, Massachusetts. “Hopefully, through this program, I can learn more and get more involved in the medical field in my community and build up my experience for college and medical school. Having talks with these great professionals has been an awesome experience.”
