Medicine for the Greater Good, formally established in 2013 at Johns Hopkins Bayview, is an initiative and formal curriculum that seeks to train and educate medical residents in bridging the gap in health disparities between the hospital and the community. Since the establishment of MGG, 82 residents and students have engaged in nearly 300 projects to benefit Baltimore city residents. A “medical peace corps,” MGG volunteers work with schools, churches and community centers to promote good health practices, such as discussions about diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer screening, diet and exercise. MGG is a unique partnership between Johns Hopkins, the City of Baltimore and its citizens. MGG volunteers hail from across Hopkins’ schools and disciplines, including the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and School of Nursing, undergraduates at the Johns Hopkins University Homewood campus, the Carey Business School and the Peabody Institute.
