Johanna Brait Selected for the Global Youth Summit


Johanna Brait ’18 has been selected to represent Dexter Southfield and Massachusetts at Brandeis University’s Global Youth Summit on the Future of Medicine.

Brait has aspired to become an oncologist since surviving stage IV Burkitt’s Lymphoma at age 7.

Eligible applicants consisted of students with exceptional academic records with a documented interest in a medical career. Among the hundreds of applicants, Brait is one of only 230 delegates selected for the program. According to the university, the delegation comes from across the country and around the world.

Delegates to the Summit will gain unique, behind-the-scenes insight into the dynamic world of health care through experiential learning, guest lectures and networking opportunities with leaders and innovators in the global medical community in order to build upon their already significant abilities and chart their path to becoming leaders in medicine.

Delegates will hear from prominent Brandeis faculty members including fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and medical researchers and innovators. The Summit's keynote addresses will be delivered by Dr. David Roberts, MD, Dean of External Education at Harvard Medical School.

Congratulations on this great honor, Johanna!
