Dr. Thomas Cudjoe, assistant professor in the Division of Geriatric Medicine & Gerontology, was selected as a “Protégé” in the JHM Levi Watkins Jr. Mentorship Program. This program is for high potential, high performing JHM leaders; and is intended to honor the work of Levi Watkins, Jr., MD, who was a pioneer in both cardiac surgery and civil rights. He dedicated his personal and professional life to enhancing diversity and inclusion at Johns Hopkins and in communities across the country.
The Johns Hopkins Medicine Levi Watkins, Jr. Mentorship Program is focused on identifying and developing hidden and high potential leadership talent, particularly underrepresented groups, within JHM. It is a blended development process involving mentor meetings, individual action planning, access to a digital interactive platform, assessment instruments and group meetups.
