WISH Academy Biomedical Scholar Completes Summer Envision Medical Program at UCLA!

WISH Academy 11th grader and early Biomedical Pathway scholar, Leilani Bankston-Corothers is one of the very few scholars who was selected and completed the Envision National Youth Leadership Forum for Medicine at UCLA this summer.  

Leilani had the amazing experience of participating in Clinical Skills Rotations, where she engaged in getting hands-on training for proper techniques in suturing, blood pressure measurement, neurological exams, and phlebotomy.

Leilani also participated in When Care is Hours Away, a realistic simulation designed in collaboration with wilderness medicine expert Dr. Paul Auerbach and simulation expert Dr. Rebecca Smith-Coggins, professors in Stanford University School of Medicine's Department of Emergency Medicine, that puts the scholars in the position of a first responder!

Congratulations, Leilani for completing this excellent program alongside our Biomedical Pathway!
