Charitable Giving

Johns Hopkins Medicine has a longstanding tradition of delivering the best neurological and neurosurgical care. Our many landmark contributions to the advancement of neurological and neurosurgical medicine came from novel ideas that were funded by visionary philanthropists.

We are all familiar with the outstanding, historic, international reputation of Johns Hopkins Medicine, but my time there and my time away made me understand why it deserved such a reputation - the people."
