Malachi Moody, The University of Miami

My time as a NEMA scholar has become formative for my medical career aspirations. I was able to research a topic that I hold dear to heart. During the program, I had the opportunity to meet some great peers and connect with people my age pursuing a career in the medical field. I also gained experience and a lifetime partnership with people on a quest for knowledge like myself. Furthermore, the NEMA Scholar Mentors of different academic and professional backgrounds guided me through the process of collecting data,  understanding data inference, and submitting an abstract. Lastly, as a NEMA Scholar in highschool, I gained the opportunity to submit an abstract for review before many Doctors with their Ph.D. submit their first publication. I strive towards gaining my Ph.D., and  I look forward to my continued collaboration with the NEMA Scholars program.
