Barbara Cook
The President of Johns Hopkins Community Physicians reflects on the organization and some of the experiences that shaped her.

In 2000, when Barbara Cook joined Johns Hopkins Community Physicians as vice president for medical affairs, she faced an internal primary care system urgently in need of transformation. Since then, the engaging, high-energy physician has helped develop the organization into a system serving more than 100,000 patients in 18 locations throughout the state. She will retire from the post of president of JHCP in January.

Medal for Mettle
It’s been quite a year for Benjamin Carson. In May, the director of pediatric neurosurgery was awarded a $2.5 million endowed professorship. On June 19, he received a Presidential Medal of Freedom. In a statement about the recipients of the nation’s highest civilian award, the White House cited that Carson’s “groundbreaking contributions to medicine and his inspiring efforts to help America's youth fulfill their potential have strengthened our nation." Carson, 56, was appointed director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins at age 33, becoming the institution’s youngest director of a major division. He achieved worldwide fame in 1987 after leading a team to successfully separate conjoined twins attached at the back of the head. Carson and his wife, Candy, founded the Carson Scholars Fund to award scholarships to graduating high school seniors. So far, the organization has distributed 3,400 scholarships to students in 26 states.
