WILLIAMSBURG — Keiran Uniatowski, a sophomore at Lafayette High School, is to be a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders this June.

The Congress, to be held on the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus just outside Boston June 26-28, is an honors-only program for high school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research fields.

The purpose of the event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct the top students in the country interested in these careers, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal, according to The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists website.

Uniatowski’s nomination 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. Uniatowski will represent Virginia based on his academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine, the organization said in a press release.

During the three-day Congress, Uniatowski will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science recipients discuss 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 cutting-edge advances and the future in medicine and medical technology, the organization said.

The Academy offers free services and programs to students who want to become 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 more.
