The Healthy Community Partnership grew out of relationships that Johns Hopkins Bayview established with a number of area religious congregations. Embracing the principles of dialogue, mutual education and respect, these partnerships support initiatives that help to:
- Improve access to medical care
- Offer educational programs on health topics that impact the community
- Equip individuals and groups with needed resources and tools to become stronger advocates for good health and medical care
- Address health care disparities
