Reimagining Healthcare for Maryland/the U.S. – “Neighborhood Nursing” Pilot

Reimagining Healthcare for Maryland/the U.S. – “Neighborhood Nursing” Pilot

Wednesday, June 28, 2023, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

“The US spends a higher percentage of GDP on healthcare than any other OECD country, yet its citizens experience the worst health outcomes. One solution to this mismatch of expense with poor outcomes is to link every resident with a nurse/community health worker team.”*

Please join Maryland Philanthropy Network’s Health Funders Affinity group for a discussion about a reimagined healthcare model for Maryland.

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing is convening an effort to design a new primary care model in partnership with University of Maryland, Morgan State, Coppin State, and several community organizations such as Sisters Together and Reaching (STAR) that will reimagine healthcare delivery by offering universal access for every person from birth to death through nurse-led, community-based care.

As they design the initial pilot to implement in Baltimore and a rural community, the program team would like funders to learn about the vision behind this effort and offer feedback. This is a hybrid meeting but in-person attendance is encouraged.

The following representatives of the “Neighborhood Nursing” Pilot Program will be joining us:

  • Sarah Szanton, PhD, ANP, RAAN, Dean, Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and Patricia M. Davidson Health Equity and Social Justice Endowed Professor
  • Lisa Stambolis, MSN, PNP, Senior Project Manager Neighborhood Nursing Program
  • Sharon Trivino, Associate Dean for Development

This program is for Maryland Philanthropy Network members and invited guests only.
