The Department of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is committed to the progress of biomedical discovery, teaching the next generation of doctors and scientists and the improvement of health in our neighborhood and around the globe.
This is a complicated and challenging time for Baltimore and the world. From the killings of Black Americans such as Freddie Gray and George Floyd to the ensuing riots, the indictment of police and the enduring uncertainty about how the core issues that resulted in these circumstances can be resolved provide a heavy backdrop for the work we must do to move forward. These issues have been brought to light again by the global COVID-19 pandemic that has disproportionally affected minority populations and brought social and racial injustice and inequity to the forefront of public health. I believe there are many potential ways we, Department of Medicine faculty and staff, can make a difference to our community, our patients and to one another.
