Helping Up Mission Partnership
Since 2003, the Department of Nursing has partnered with the Helping Up Mission in Baltimore City to develop and implement health education, screening programs, and treatment services for the Mission's 500 member residents. Most recently, Dr. Mary A. Lashley, who also serves on their Board of Directors, has worked with Mission leadership to develop the Mission's first ever Center for Health and Wellness. This Center will create opportunities for students and faculty from the College of Health Professions to offer more health and wellness programs, provide service-learning opportunities, and allow for faculty to engage in community-based research that benefits the Mission's homeless population.
