Medical Heroes

The National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland & Delaware (NKFMDDE) is honored to work with so many medical professionals- from doctors to renal dieticians to social workers and dialysis technicians to nurses. We applaud the work they do each day but particularly this year when nothing was even close to the normal we may have know because of the pandemic.

June 2021

This month we are honoring Dr. Sumeska Thavarajah, nephrologist at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (JHBMC).

Dr. Sumeska (Su) Thavarajah is currently a nephrology faculty member of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and primarily attends on the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center campus. After attending Wayne State University School of Medicine, she completed her internal medicine residency training at the University of Connecticut Health Center and her nephrology fellowship training at Johns Hopkins Bayview. She has interests in patient education and has worked on developing the patient education series with her colleagues. She has roles as teaching faculty for the internal medicine residency program at JHBMC and the nephrology fellowship at Johns Hopkins Hospital. She is the immediate past Chair of the Medical Advisory Board of the National Kidney Foundation Serving Maryland and Delaware, which she continues to be an active member, and is a board member locally and nationally.

Dr. Su has been instrumental in the creation of many of the local programs that our market offers and is a stanch supporter of anything that provides support and hope to those impacted by kidney disease and their caregivers. She brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience to our local market. She is invaluable and very much appreciated.

Thank you, Dr. Su for your years of service to NKFMDDE and the kidney community. You are our SHERO!
