The Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute (UHI) is a collaboration and a vital connection with East Baltimore. The UHI is the starting point for forging true university and community partnerships in health care, education and community planning, with all partners working to change the trajectory for the children, youth and families of East Baltimore.
The UHI draws on the expertise of neighborhood residents, educators, philanthropic organizations, elected representatives and community leaders, in addition to the wealth of intellectual resources that Hopkins can offer.

We're celebrating 15 years of engaging communities and improving health! Watch a video about our first 15 years below.
We asked New Lens Productions to work with us to create the video. New Lens is a youth-driven social justice organization working to assist youth in making art and media about often-underrepresented perspectives of life in Baltimore. The work is used to address systemic problems, facilitate dialogue, shift perspectives and stimulate action. They also produce art, like this video, on commission. More than 200 youth benefit from their efforts every year.
