Alexus Bock, a junior at Jim Elliot Christian High School in Lodi, has been nominated to attend the Congress of Future Medical Leaders in Boston this June.
The Congress 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.
Bock was nominated by Dr. Connie Mariano, the Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to represent California based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine. During the three-day event, Bock will join students from across the country and hear Nobel Laureates, National Medal of Science winners and Ivy League top medical school deans.
Bock says her aspirations to go into the medical field stem from being diagnosed with a congenital heart defect at the age of 9. While she holds a position as the junior class president, member of the Interact Club, California Scholarship Federation/Family Gap Ministries and is also involved in several local bands all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA.
