On June 18, 2017, Brandeis University announced that Magnolia Wang ’19 will represent Newark Academy and New Jersey at the Global Youth Summit on the Future of Medicine.
Aligned with Brandeis' elite admissions standards, only students with exceptional academic records and test scores as well as documented interest in a medical or health career were invited to apply. Out of the hundreds of outstanding applicants, Magnolia is one of only 230 delegates selected for the program.
Delegates to the Summit will gain unique, behind-the-scenes insight into the dynamic world of health care through experiential learning, guest lectures and networking opportunities with leaders and innovators in the global medical community in order to build upon their already significant abilities and chart their path to becoming leaders in medicine.
Delegates will hear from prominent Brandeis faculty members including fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and medical researchers and innovators. The Summit's keynote addresses will be delivered by Dr. David Roberts, MD, Dean of External Education at Harvard Medical School.
"The next generation of health care providers will practice in an environment hard to imagine just a few years ago. Leading-edge science is rapidly changing the daily practice of health care" said Steven Goldstein, MA, MD, PhD, FAAP, chairman of the Global Youth Summit at Brandeis University; and dean of the Stritch School of Medicine at Loyola University Chicago. “We are in the midst of the most significant and fundamental change in health care delivery in our lifetime and young people who start now will be the future leaders in the field of medicine.”
