Tomorrow’s Neighborhood

Want to know more about the Science + Technology Park at Johns Hopkins? Check out the Web site recently launched by Forest City, developers of the 31-acre park and first phase of the New East Baltimore Community, just north of the medical campus.

The site is designed mainly for potential tenants—early stage or mature life science companies. But there is also much to learn for faculty, staff and students, some of whom may very well live, work, learn and play there one day.

Artist renderings, images and maps show what this new community will look like. There’s also information for tenants on what Johns Hopkins can offer in the way of institutional resources.

The first building at 855 N. Wolfe St. now is under development and currently leasing.

Record numbers of med students are traveling the globe to improve health in underserved areas. In that spirit, the central branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library on Cathedral Street will showcase photos taken abroad by 40 students from the schools of Medicine and Public Health. The goal, says Adrienne Shapiro, M.D./Ph.D. candidate and president of the Global Health Interest Group, is to raise awareness about health care needs worldwide. Evocative images represent 15 countries. Opening reception: Nov. 14, Pratt Library. Exhibit runs through February. Info: or 410-396-5430.

Together At Last

The Celebration of Service Excellence, held on Oct. 3 in Turner Auditorium, was one of those rare occasions that brings together employees from all across Hopkins Medicine. Among the 700-plus who turned out were 220 from Bayview. Blue-shirted and high-spirited, they arrived by the busload—five in all. Some 75 came from the Home Care Group waving magic wands, symbols of their service excellence campaign. Staff from Howard County General Hospital, Community Physicians and HealthCare also braved the morning rush, arriving from parts near and far.

Keynoter Quint Studer, a former hospital executive, now head of his own workplace consulting company, delivered a lively talk on creating a better work environment. Service Excellence Standards of Behavior, the employee guide that stresses good workplace manners and customer service, was distributed for the first time.
