Hear the inspiring story of the Mom and Daughter Duo who recently graduated from Medical School Together And will work at the same Hospital in Louisiana. Our exclusive interview with Dr. Cynthia Kudji and her Daughter Dr. Jasmine Kudji
Dr. Cynthia Kudji, originally from Ghana, West Africa, has come a long way from being a 23-year-old student and pregnant with daughter Jasmine, when she had to put dreams of becoming a doctor on the back burner. She eventually became a nurse and worked as an RN and a Nurse Practitioner for nearly a decade before deciding to attend medical school. The UMHS Endeavour spoke to Dr. Kudji about her journey through medical school at UMHS and how outstanding professors and staff made a big difference for her as a nontraditional student. In addition, she and daughter Dr. Jasmine Kudji talked about the unique challenges of working during the COVID-19 pandemic, why African Americans have been especially affected by the virus, and more.
