Academically Gifted high school students don’t have to look far for a new endeavor in medical sciences at The Health Museum’s Fifth Annual Conference in Houston.

This event, titled Challenges & Solutions in Medicine in the 21st Century, is exclusively designed for Gifted high school students looking to explore the challenges and solutions facing modern day medicine.

The conference will be held from July 8-11, 2014 at The Health Museum in the Museum District in Houston at 1515 Hermann Drive.

“This unique experience will deepen these high school students’ understating of medical science and introduce them to a variety of medical-related career paths to explore,” said Anna Hawley, Chief Operating Officer of The Health Museum.

This will be the fifth year for this four-day conference, in which attendees will meet with leading experts from the world renowned Texas Medical Center to discuss topics ranging from cutting-edge diagnostic technologies to astounding advances in neuroscience and nanotechnology to the debate surrounding national health care policy.

This year’s conference theme will be Exploring New Frontiers in Biomedicine. The 2014 conference session will focus on the ways science is going beyond traditional boundaries of what we can see, understand or treat in order to find solutions for the medical challenges of the 21st century.
