katherine recently received a great honor.
she was nominated for acceptance in
the National Youth Leadership Forum (NYLF) in Medicine.
(letter of acceptance)
she was accepted!!!
and, THIS is a great one...
given it has been eight years since the last student
from henderson county senior high was invited
to attend this forum... and, katherine is the only student
of approximately 2000 to be invited this year.
did i say we are proud???
the forum, which runs 10 days during the summer of 2009 at a us medical center of her choice from a list she has been given, is focused on such topics as medical ethics, health care in the community, career choices, as well as some shadowing opportunities, etc... the sessions are run by medical students and physicians.
we hope this will be a first great exposure to the medical system for katherine.
we are also hoping that she will benefit greatly from the privilege of real-world experience from the honor with which she has been bestowed:)
love and blessings,
