The Urban Health Institute

Visit the Urban Health Institute Web site

The Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute (UHI) serves as an interface between Johns Hopkins and the Baltimore community in which it resides. The UHI was established in 2000 by Dr. William Brody, then president of the University, in response to a recommendation from the Urban Health Council — a group of community residents, clergy, local leaders, business representatives, city officials, and faculty, staff, and students from the Johns Hopkins Institutions. Together with its community partners, the UHI explores ways that the research, teaching, and clinical expertise of the University can be better harnessed for the benefit of the residents of East Baltimore.

The mission of the UHI is to serve as a catalyst that brings together the resources of Johns Hopkins Institutions with the City of Baltimore, and especially East Baltimore, to improve the community's health and well-being, and in so doing serve as a model of community-university collaboration regionally and nationally.
