How Your Support Helps

A fourth event has been added to the "Hopkins at the BSO" event series for Saturday, April 26. Three of the series' events were sponsored by JHM&SA. Click here for registration information or visit our events calendar.

On Tuesday, February 25, JHM&SA and the School of Medicine sponsored a 'Heart Healthy' snack break for all medical students in the Armstrong Building. Students who stopped by were entered into a drawing for “lunch with an alumnus.” Redonda Miller, Med ’92, was our “prize” and will break bread with first year student, Judy Doong.
