The National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists chose Perez to be a Louisiana representative at its symposium held at UMass Lowell, just outside of Boston, MA.   

The Congress gathers many of the country’s finest high school students who aspire to enter careers in the medical field and singles them out for special recognition and ongoing mentorship by some of the greatest minds in medicine.

Perez was introduced to top medical school deans, award-winning inventors and scientists, heard from Nobel Prize laureates and was exposed to cutting edge medicine.

Bossier Schools congratulates Perez and wishes him the best as he pursues his dream career.
