Function of Organization:

Health Leads is a social enterprise that envisions a healthcare system that addresses all patients’ basic resource needs as a standard part of quality care. For 20 years, Health Leads has worked with leading healthcare organizations to tackle social co-morbidities by connecting patients to the community-based resources they need to be healthy – from food to transportation to healthcare benefits. Health Leads is committed to leveraging its tools, expertise and direct services to change what “counts” as healthcare – and accelerate the leadership, best practices, incentives and research required to improve the health and well-being of patients.. 

Participation Opportunities:

Health Leads operates from three clinics within the Johns Hopkins system in Baltimore:

Volunteers at these sites help patients with a range of services, from accessing health insurance and SNAP benefits, to finding legal services and commodities, such as cribs and clothing.  Volunteers will have the opportunity to work with patients in a hospital setting, gain knowledge of the health care landscape and work with an interdisciplinary team of students.
