About Us

Nearly a century and a half ago, Johns Hopkins wrote a letter in which he established his vision and values for the medical center and the principles that would guide the enterprise. Those values continue to provide us with inspiration and direction today.

A Journey in Harmony

Recently, faculty and staff members from Johns Hopkins Rheumatology had the chance to be a part of something very unique. A choir was formed, joining together different backgrounds, religions and roles. Each week, they practiced singing a South African hymn called “Ukuthula”. The individual voices combined to create something special, a beautiful harmony.
