Community SpotlightPitch and Storytelling Competition Celebrates Work of 2021 Ward Infinity Cohort
Johns Hopkins Medicine and Sibley Memorial Hospital have supported innovative teams through the Ward Infinity accelerator program, a three-year-old initiative that improves community health in Washington, D.C.’s underinvested neighborhoods by inviting community members to develop solutions to ongoing challenges.
Last year was the first time the program included a pitch-and-storytelling competition that offered additional funding opportunities.
Community Impact Reports
In a partnership with the DC Health Matters Collaborative, Sibley Hospital conducted an extensive community health needs assessment (CHNA) to identify the most important health issues in our community. This work is undertaken in partnership, is data-driven, and engages the community. The ultimate pursuit is an equitable and sustainable state of health for District of Columbia residents.
