Gertrude Stein, the well known lesbian writer and intellectual, was a medical student at Johns Hopkins near the turn of the century, and the GSS seeks to maintain her legacy of active lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer presence and involvement in the affairs of JHMI today. We are dedicated to maintaining and developing an even more accepting environment for diversity at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. For more information about GSS, email

Incarceration and Health Justice Collective

The Incarceration and Health Justice Collective is a group of students at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions who recognize the importance of health justice for incarcerated and previously incarcerated persons. We strive to educate ourselves and our peers about health disparities stemming from the carceral system and the societal inequities that manifest through it, to support policy and advocacy initiatives countering mass incarceration and improving healthcare for incarcerated people, and to engage in service projects that empower people whose lives have been affected by the criminal legal system.
