Marmion Freshman Ali Benjamin to participate in Congress of Future Medial Leaders

Benjamin Ali of Geneva, the son of Riaz and Victoria Ali and a freshman at Marmion Academy in Aurora, has been selected as a delegate for the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, which will take place in Lowell, MA on June 25-27, 2016.

The Congress of Future Medical Leaders is an honors-only program for high 
school students who want to become physicians or go into medical research 
fields. The purpose of this event is to honor, inspire, motivate and direct 
the top students in the country who aspire to be physicians or medical 
scientists, to stay true to their dream and, after the event, to provide a 
path, plan and resources to help them reach their goal.

Ali was nominated by Dr. Robert Darling to represent Marmion Academy and the 
State of Illinois based on his academic achievement, leadership potential and 
determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine. Darling is the 
Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical 
Scientists.

During the three-day Congress, Ali will join students from across the country 
and hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about 
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 learned about cutting-edge 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, National Academy of 
Future Physicians and Medical Scientists. "Focused, bright and determined 
students like Benjamin are our future and he deserves all the mentoring and 
guidance we can give him." www.marmion.org
