luvvlee_1048 Vivien Thomas- he developed procedures to treat blue baby syndrome. Although he was not allowed to perform surgery, he assisted Alfred Blalock on many operations. Due to his research, he laid the foundation for lifesaving cardiac surgery here in Baltimore at John Hopkins. This surgery has saved my niece’s life. A portrait of Vivien Thomas hangs at John Hopkins today. Little black history fact 😊#breakfastbite
