A program for medical residents at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center is working to bridge the gap between the hospital and the community by bringing the doctor to the patient. Since Medicine for the Greater Good began in 2013, 82 residents and students have engaged in nearly 300 projects to benefit city residents, such as helping parents manage their child’s asthma, providing support to caregivers and teaching members of churches how to do blood pressure screenings.
