Our work is deeply rooted in equity, evidence, and policy
Bloomberg Fellows work for at least one year for their organizations following graduation
We award more than 50 full-tuition MPH and DrPH scholarships to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health each year
Bloomberg Philanthropies’ donation to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health that launched the Initiative
By spreading smart public health strategies that save lives and bringing people together to try new approaches, we can make the same strides in the 21st century against health threats like air pollution, gun violence, and obesity that we did in the 20th century against infectious disease. There’s no institution better equipped to lead the charge than Johns Hopkins.
