Match Day is one of the most important moments in a medical student’s journey, with thousands waiting every year to see if and where they have been placed into a postgraduate residency program—a requirement for obtaining a medical license.
For Dr. Cynthia Kudji Sylvester and Dr. Jasmine Kudji, Match Day 2020 was extra special, as the mother-daughter duo became one of the first ever to graduate medical school at the same time and be matched to the same institution, the Louisiana State University School of Medicine. Now, Dr. Jasmine Kudji, a general surgery resident at LSU Health in New Orleans, and Dr. Cynthia Kudji Sylvester, in residency in Family Medicine at LSU Health Lafayette, find themselves at a critical time in their careers facing an unprecedented moment in medical history as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to surge all over the nation.
Join us for an intimate conversation between the two doctors to hear firsthand about their experiences on the front lines of the battle against the virus in their community, their journey navigating the medical field and system as women of color, and the power and importance of the bond between mother and daughter.
