Our Team

The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center is in your community. At Johns Hopkins, we recognize our obligation to serve and educate the community and to ensure that new discoveries and knowledge are disseminated at the community level.

Our outreach programs to minorities and underserved citizens have provided access to Johns Hopkins expertise and care to communities throughout Baltimore and Maryland and dramatically improved the ability of everyone to access cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment.

Our goal is not only to teach people about cancer screening, prevention, and treatment, but to guide and support them as they put what they’ve learned into use.
