GIM has given birth to still another research center! This time it is the Hypertension Center of Excellence located at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Clinic. The GIM-based Center is directed by Gregory Prokopowicz, MD, MPH--a veteran GIM faculty member in the Tumulty Group practice who has been taking "informal" consults regarding hard-to-control hypertension for years.
Dr. Prokopowicz has recruited an all-star Department of Medicine team to the Center, including Co-Directors Drs. Oscar Cingolani (Cardiology) and John Sperati (Nephrology) as well as GIM research experts Larry Appel MD, MPH and Pete Miller, MD, PhD.

Dr. Brancati encourages GIM to "Please join . . . in congratulating Greg and in making this new clinical service known to our colleagues around Hopkins."
