I am a second-year PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology at JHU Bloomberg School of Public Health where I study clinical trials and evidence synthesis methods. I grew up in rural Southern Ontario, Canada, and music has always been a part of my life. My primary instruments are the guitar and drums, and I now experiment with other instruments including piano and banjo. I have also played and sang with progressive metal, pop, rock, and folk bands.
Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund
The Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund was created in 2007 from the vision of then-President William R. Brody to support nonprofit organizations that both serve the communities in close proximity to Hopkins campuses and are associated with Johns Hopkins through employee and/or institutional involvement. United Way pledge designations made to the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund assist local nonprofit organizations' efforts to build stronger neighborhoods by addressing needs in areas of: Community Revitalization, Education, Employment, Health, Public Safety.
In addition to serving these needs, organizations that receive funding must provide services within pre-designated geographic boundaries, agree to use or return funds by the end of the fiscal year, and comply with other disbursement and reporting requirements.
