Fleming to participate in leadership forum

"The National Youth Leadership Forum offers an invaluable perspective for students who participate in the Forum on Medicine," said Donna Weldin, executive director of NYLF. "The relationships were forge with health care facilities and educational institutions throughout the country afford these young people with an eye-opening experience, introducing them to the broad spectrum of medical careers."

In addition to site visits to cutting-edge medical schools and clinical facilities, Fleming will hear from and have the opportunity to interact with leaders within he medical field. Students have up-close personal contact with physicians, surgeons, researchers, scientists and medical educators as they go behind the scenes to view these professionals at work.

NYLF is a nonprofit educational organization that brings various professions to life, empowering outstanding high school students with the confidence to make well-informed career choices.
