The UHI's programs and activities support our mission to serve as a catalyst that brings together the resources of Johns Hopkins Institutions (JHI) with the city of Baltimore.
While the UHI’s primary area of impact includes the neighborhoods of East Baltimore, the reach of our work is never limited. Together with our community partners, the UHI explores ways that the research, teaching and clinical expertise of Johns Hopkins Institutions can benefit all residents of Baltimore.

The UHI facilitates collaborations between JHI and the Baltimore community around research, community projects, program planning/implementation and evaluation. Through a diverse set of events and programs, the UHI has developed creative approaches for collaboration building to improve health outcomes.

Knowledge Sharing and Education
As an academic institution, the Johns Hopkins University seeks to advance the world’s store of knowledge, building on what we know and making new discoveries. But knowledge is meant to be shared, and without thoughtful application, it is empty. The UHI brings together the intellectual and social capital of the community and the University to benefit our city and our world.

Partnerships for Health
Our work at the UHI would be impossible without the inspiration, expertise, and hard work of our many collaborators and partners. They enlighten our proposals, guide our efforts and work shoulder to shoulder with us for the benefit of our East Baltimore community. As our joint efforts produce results, those benefits can be communicated to help urban communities elsewhere.
