Oakton High students Lucy Kim, Kevina Wang, and Sara Razavi presented at the 2020 Global Health Leaders Conference, sponsored by Johns Hopkins University, held virtually this summer. The three Oakton students were the only Virginia students admitted into the selective conference program. Wang gave a presentation on depression; Razavi delivered a presentation on racism in medicine; and Kim presented on data gaps and social determinants. All three students indicated an interest in a career in medicine or a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) field. The Global Health Leaders Conference is a JHU student- and faculty-led conference that features some of the world’s leading researchers, physicians, policy developers, professors, and a Nobel Laureate. Students from the U.S. and Canada who are future leaders in global health, public health, and medicine are accepted to participate by a selective process.
