Kamron Soldozy, a student at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology (TJHSST), served as a delegate to the Congress of Future Medical Leaders, an honors program for high school students interested in becoming physicians or pursuing a career in medical research. Attendees heard from Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science winners on leading medical research; learned what to expect in medical school from medical school deans; heard patient stories about medical miracles; learned about cutting-edge advances in medicine; and were able to watch a live surgical procedure. Soldozy was nominated by Robert Darling, medical director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists, as Virginia’s representative to the congress, based on his academic achievement, leadership potential, and future career goals. At TJHSST, Soldozy studies chemistry and biology, neurobiology, organic chemistry, and computer science. He is involved with the TJHSST German Honor Society, Chemistry Team, and Developer’s Club, and competes in power lifting. Soldozy volunteers at Reston Hospital and shadows a local chiropractor.
