IN BRIEF: Hopkins Postdocs Hike Old Rag Mountain



[Larger Image]       

On Saturday, June 6th, 16 brave Hopkins postdocs climbed Old Rag Mountain in Shenandoah National Park. During the > 10 mile circuit hike, they conquered a treacherous rock scramble and reached an elevation of 3,291 feet at the summit. The trip offered stunning views of the Virginia landscape, animal sightings (including rattle snakes, eagles, deer, and bears), and the opportunity to develop new bonds with fellow postdocs.

They celebrated this impressive feat with a well-deserved campfire meal and overnight camping. JHPDA Social Committee generously sponsored the event.

IN BRIEF:  Levi Watkins Lecture Series spearheaded by joint cooperation between DPAC of the JHPDA and Black Residents Association


Levi Watkins1.png

      

The Levi Watkins Seminar Series was thought up and developed by Dr. Marc Edwards of the Black Residents and Postdoctoral Association with help from our new co-president Dr. Stanley Andrisse, DPAC co-chair Dr. Dionna Williams, and Dr. Charles Odonkor. It will feature minority faculty members from within the Hopkins community as guest lecturers to provide opportunities for mentorship and collaboration and to promote diversity.

Dr. Levi Watkins was a professor emeritus in cardiac surgery and the first black chief resident in surgery at Johns Hopkins. He also showed his support to the Hopkins postdoctoral community by serving as associate dean of postdoctoral affairs. He died two months ago at the age of 70. The first lecture in this memorial lecture series is slated for September of 2015.
