North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics - Student
March of Dimes - Volunteer
William Johnson was born 23 weeks to the day. If he had been born any earlier, or if had not been taken to a tertiary care hospital, he would not be alive today. William has a visual impairment as a result of being on a ventilator for the first 3 months of his life, but other than that he is a healthy, happy, grateful teenager. He is a student at the North Carolina School of Science and Math in Morganton, where the emphasis is on data science, and he has served as the co-chair of the local March for Babies walk in Statesville, NC. He is excited to serve as a patient stakeholder on studies related to premature birth, studies related to pediatric blindness/low vision, or other studies where his voice could be of benefit. William is an excellent writer as well and is happy to assist in the dissemination of findings.
