Four current AHCF seniors presented their NEOMED HPAC research poster project at the Family Medicine Educational Consortium (FMEC) conference in Cleveland. Maggie Ferrara (Kent), Niarra Gooden-Clarke (Kent), Jacquelyn Shields (Cuyahoga Falls), and Sarah Wyatt (Kent) were selected by NEOMED HPAC to be one of the few HPAC high school groups from around the country to present at this medical conference. They did an outstanding job! They also positively interacted with a wide variety of family physicians, medical vendors, and health care professionals and sat in on several educational research presentations and discussions. They represented our school and compact in a very positive way. I also attached a few pictures. If you see these girls, please congratulate them on a great job.
