Project HEALTH seeks to break the link between poverty and poor health. Though national in scope, Project HEALTH takes a local approach to finding innovative solutions to the health care crisis. College students are mobilized to work in urban community clinics and provide low-income families in Baltimore with access to a wide variety of resources. Project HEALTH also works closely with doctors, nurses, lawyers, and social workers to provide patients with a holistic approach to health care that compliments the care provided by health professionals in the clinical setting. Project HEALTH is a national network with sites in Baltimore, Boston, New York, Rhode Island, Washington D.C., and Chicago. Universities participating in Project HEALTH Baltimore include the Johns Hopkins University and Loyola College in Maryland. UMBC, in partnership with St. Agnes Hospital, has launched a family-resource desk to connect families to community resources critical to their health, safety and economic survival.
