  Proviso West Junior Attends Medical Conference

 
 

A Proviso West High School junior attended the National Academies’ Congress of Future Medical Leaders at the Armory in Washington, D.C., November 14 to 16.

Kennedy Reed was among the 4,600 students from across the country and 11 international schools to attend the conference, which featured speeches from notables including Dr. Boris Lushniak, former acting U.S. Surgeon General; Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Institute of Health; and Dr. Michael Barratt, an astronaut with NASA. Attendees discussed the current leading medical research, received advice on what they can expect in medical school, heard stories from patients who are considered living medical miracles, and learned more about cutting-edge technology and the future in medical technology.

“I learned that everything should lead to what you want to be,” Kennedy said. “They said to keep working at what I’m doing and you’ll get through.”
