Our speakers include Dr. Tina Cheng, Director of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Dr. Shyamasundaran Kottilil, Associate Director of the Division of Clinical Care and Research at the Institute of Human Virology (IHV) at University of Maryland School of Medicine. We will have the University of Maryland School of Medicine Director of Admissions join us for a pre-medical student panel!
