Wellness and Health Promotion

Welcome to the UHS Office of Wellness and Health Promotion!  This office was established in 2017 as part of Johns Hopkins University's efforts to enhance the well-being of its students and trainees.  UHS Wellness and Health Promotion serves graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, house staff and other trainees within the School of Medicine, Bloomberg School of Public Health, School of Nursing, and the Berman Institute. 

Our mission is to enrich the experience of students and trainees on the East Baltimore campus and promote an environment that supports various dimensions of health, including physical, emotional, intellectual, interpersonal, community and financial wellness.

We are engaging with student and trainee representatives to meet wellness needs through new offerings, programs and resources. Please stay tuned for updates by subscribing to our listserv here and following us on Facebook.

To contact us with any comments, ideas, recommendations or questions about UHS Wellness and Health Promotion, please email us at uhswellness@jhu.edu.

Summer Swim Club

Experienced coaches will lead a 7:15-8:30 AM practice for the intermediate and advanced swimmers, and a 8:30-9:15 AM  practice for beginner swimmers. To help offset the cost of reserving pool space, there is a one-time fee of $30 for the summer. You will not​ need to purchase a Cooley Center pool membership to participate. To read more about the swim club, please see this detailed  information sheet and frequently asked questions
