SOM Class of 2010

A professional opera singer. A writer for an all-female musical sketch comedy group. A U.S. Naval Academy midshipman. As disparate as they may seem, these three young men and women have one thing in common: They’re all part of this year’s incoming class of 2010.

Out of 4,150 candidates who submitted completed applications to the School of Medicine, 255 were accepted, and 120 accepted Hopkins. Of those, 51 are women and 69 are men. They hail from 39 states and Canada and dozens of undergraduate institutions. Eight are from Johns Hopkins, nine are from Harvard, and 12—a full 10 percent of the class—are from Yale, including a husband-and-wife team.

United Way

This year’s JHM campaign, chaired by Patricia Brown, president of Johns Hopkins HealthCare, and Barbara De Lateur, professor and former director of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, runs in East Baltimore for two weeks beginning Monday, Oct. 9, and ending Friday, Oct. 20. The annual kick-off breakfast for campaign leaders, coordinators and team captains is set for Sept. 26 in Turner, beginning at 8 a.m.

Bayview’s campaign takes place this month, from Sept. 25 to Sept. 29, with a round of activities, including a bake sale and silent auction. Howard County General Hospital’s campaign takes place at the end of October.

The total JHM goal is $1.3 million. What really counts, though, is not how much you give, but simply that you give.

Call for Mentors

Health System staff are invited to mentor a high school student as part of the Johns Hopkins Youth Mentoring B.O.N.D. to B.O.N.D. program. You can participate during a work day without having to use personal time off. Here’s your chance to mentor a leader of tomorrow and give back to the Baltimore City community. Info: Andrea Norris, anorris@hcdi.com or 301-552-8803; Deborah Knight-Kerr, dkkerr@jhmi.edu or 410-955-1488.
