The Brancati Center for the Advancement of Community Care

The Brancati Center was established by a philanthropic gift from Walgreens and endowed in the name and vision of Dr. Frederick Brancati, Professor of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Brancati developed a unique vision for uniting industry partners and academic medical centers with the ultimate goal of developing translational models and exchange of knowledge and ideas between Johns Hopkins and the market through core corporate collaborations.

Dr. Brancati was a highly regarded teacher and mentor, having won numerous awards from medical students, graduate students and postdoctoral students at Johns Hopkins. In 2013, he was named a Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine by the Johns Hopkins University Board of Trustees, a high honor bestowed upon very few senior faculty members to recognize their exemplary service to the institution. In 2013, Dr. Brancati died at the age of 53 from ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Mission: The Brancati Center improves the health of communities – locally, nationally, and globally – by developing, evaluating, and disseminating new models of healthcare that leverage the skills of a diverse range of healthcare providers. The Brancati Center will engages community and corporate organizations, payers and policy-makers in a supportive partnership with patients and caregivers.
