Diversity and Inclusion at Johns Hopkins
Welcome to the 2016 Annual Report
To the Johns Hopkins Medicine community:
Diversity and inclusion are integral to the excellence and success of any institution, but they are especially vital for academic medical centers like Johns Hopkins, where the promise of trust and healing is essential to the delivery of an extraordinary experience for each of our patients, employees, volunteers, trainees, suppliers and community members.
In Solidarity with the LGBTQ Community
In the wake of the massacre at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando last June, Johns Hopkins Medicine leaders took a variety of steps to show Johns Hopkins’ support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) community.
Celebrating Diverse Faith Traditions
From Easter to Yom Kippur, from Ramadan to the Baha’i festival of Ridvan, members of the Johns Hopkins Medicine community celebrate an array of religious holidays. To raise awareness, Johns Hopkins Medicine has created the Religious and Cultural Observances Toolkit.
A Mobile Solution to Better Health
Working out of the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center Community Care-A-Van, physician assistant Pat Letke cares for some of the poorest of the working poor—uninsured families, mostly Latino immigrants—in the neighborhoods around Johns Hopkins Bayview.
Dementia in Korean-American Elders
Ethnic minority elders in the United States have a higher prevalence of dementia than their white counterparts—yet are comparatively underdiagnosed and at greater risk of not receiving appropriate care. Hae Ra Han and her team are working to change that.
Forging Connections for the Greater Good
Medicine for the Greater Good, staffed by internal medicine residents at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, as well as undergraduate and graduate students, brings health education, behavioral counseling and more to churches, schools and other community locations around Bayview.
Through the Supply Chain Institute, a job training partnership between Johns Hopkins and Baltimore City Community College, local men and women gain the skills they need to pursue a career path, rather than just an entry-level job.
