Academic Programs

The Johns Hopkins LEAH program is housed in the section of Adolescent Medicine in the division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine in the department of Pediatrics at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The section houses the Adolescent Health Promotion Training Program (T32), funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) to provide research training to physicians in the Adolescent Medicine Fellowship. The section is also home of the Adolescent Health Research Group (AHRG) which was formed in 1999 and consists of investigators and staff who work together to conduct fundamental and applied public health research directed at prevention and control of sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. The LEAH program has strong ties to other schools and institutions located on or near the campus, including the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing and others. Within the School of Public Health, the section works most closely with the department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health, which is chaired by Dr. Robert Blum. Population, Family and Reproductive Health is an interdisciplinary department whose research, teaching and practice address population change, sexual and reproductive health and maternal and child health. There is an adolescent health track for master and doctoral students. Population, Family and Reproductive Health also houses the Johns Hopkins Center for Adolescent Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. The center is one of 33 prevention research centers supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
