Holding was nominated by Dr. Robert Darling, the Medical Director of the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists to represent Hominy based on her academic achievement, leadership potential and determination to serve humanity in the field of medicine, according to the release.

During the three-day Congress, Holding joined students from across the country to hear Nobel Laureates and National Medal of Science Winners talk about leading medical research.
