Cath Lab nurse Maryann Derdock climbs Mt. Kilimanjaro (yes, you read that right)
Maryann Derdock, RN, a nurse in our Cath Lab, has achieved something most people would only dream about: she has made the six day hike to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest free-standing mountain in the world (elevation 19,336 feet).
Maryann and her high school friends made the journey together and were recently featured in the Capital Gazette. Click here read the article.
Look closely at this picture… it’s hard to tell at first, but what looks like only clouds in the background is actually Mount Kilimanjaro. Wow, that’s high.
What an incredible goal. Way to follow your dreams, Maryann! We are so proud to call you an AAMC nurse.
