Hey everyone! My name is Annika Agarwal and I am the founder of The N.A.I.N.A. Foundation. Our mission is to provide underprivileged people around the world access to medical care, something that is oftentimes considered a luxury to them. So far, we have raised nearly 1,000 eyeglasses, as well as other donations such as blood pressure machines. With that, we have partnered with the LIONS Club of Mumbai, and reached over 10,000 people with health clinics that we have set up in the area. Additionally, we have organized health seminars to raise awareness about the lack of medical attention in third world countries. One of the main aspects of our foundation is dance. We dance at events in the New Jersey area to provide those in need with surgeries. So far, we have raised over $15,000 dollars and provided nearly 100 surgeries. However, we believe that there are so many more people out there that can help us out. Therefore, if you would like to start a chapter in your school, please dm me! You do not necessarily need to be a dancer. We have so many other opportunities open for new chapters!

Has anyone done the NYLF medicine program?
Link
2 months ago
We have seen a few questions about other NYLF programs in the past. These are good programs but not as prestigious as one expects them to be and the cost is quite high. Colleges don't consider them very selective hence it won't add that much value to your college app. However, it is a good opportunity to visit college campus and meet some people while learning a thing or two about the field you are interested in. If your family is ok to pay for this it could be a good experience. Just don't expect it to be anything more than a regular summer camp.

I haven't done it but heard mixed feedback

If it wasn't for the cost it would be a decent experience

You can try to shadow a doctor but not sure they would allow it in surgery
If I have all 118 elements of the periodic table memorized in order, I know their chemical symbols, and I know how to spell this, will this help me become an anesthesiologist? I am currently an eighth grader.

It's amazing that you have done it at your age and it will be helpful once you take advanced classes but you would need to focus more on real concepts vs just memorizing stuff. Plus you still have a long way to becoming a doctor
