Shout Out! to Chief Resident Dr. Maria Sofia Martinez Cruz

Shout Out! to Chief Resident Dr. Maria Sofia Martinez Cruz for organizing our inaugural Women in Medicine workshop at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center in conjunction with the ACP-Maryland Chapter Women in Medicine committee and the Chief Residents of Baltimore (CRAB) committee. This event was held in March to celebrate Women’s History Month.

We were able to gather women residents, faculty from not only the program but from other programs, and community physicians in the local area for the program. The workshop discussed “Fertility in Women Physicians,” “Approaching Opportunity in Your Career,” and “Striving for Work-life Balance.”

“I want to give a huge Shout Out! to the residents, fellows, attending physicians, nurses, and other associates who worked over the holiday weekend to care for our patients! I spent my Thanksgiving on a shift in the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital ED, and although it’s always tough being away from my family on holidays, the camaraderie among our team was palpable. We were in it, together.”

Shout Out! Internal Medicine Residents

A Shout Out! from Dr. Claudia Georges (PGY-3, Internal Medicine):

This holiday season, the MedStar Health Baltimore family wanted to make it a little brighter for those in need.

The Internal Medicine residents organized a gift donation drive to support The Transformation Center, a local organization that supports rebuilding lives and restoring communities by providing pathways to rise above obstacles of poverty, addiction, poor education, unemployment, and social injustice.

We are truly grateful for everyone who helped us collect more than 50 toys for children ages 0-13, by filling The Transformation Center’s Amazon Wishlist during our holiday party.

I am really thankful for our faculty Dr. Anita Tammara (Wellness Committee Chair), Dr. Andrea Gaspar (Community Outreach Committee Chair) and to our amazing Dr. Heather Hartman-Hall for their tremendous support! And to everyone joined us in this worthy cause (faculty or residents)!

Together, we spread some holiday cheer and made the world a better place.

Happy holidays!
