The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing’s relationship with East Baltimore is one born of geography, of course, but also history, need, common interest, and shared goals. From community care at the Wald Center and House of Ruth to health education and screenings for families the Henderson-Hopkins School to simple, open, everyday interactions on its streets, JHSON has worked to make East Baltimore, and all of Baltimore and beyond, a better place to call home.
It is why we see beauty and signs of hope in East Baltimore even (and perhaps mostly) at its grittiest—it is a neighborhood alive with color, strength, and possibility. It is why we love We Are All East Baltimore, the series of student, faculty, and staff profiles that continues within this issue. East Baltimore is our neighborhood. And we can only get better together.
