Two Martha’s Vineyard Public Charter School students are attending the National Youth Leadership Forum: Medicine this week.

Recent graduate Brigida Larsen and student Camilla Prata are attending the forum at Babson College. The nine-day program introduces outstanding high school students to emerging issues in public health, medical ethics, research and general practice. Students are also exposed to the real world of medicine through site visits to medical facilities.

The National Youth Leadership Forum was created to help high-achieving high school students prepare for their academic future and professional careers. For more information about the program visit
