The United Against Inequities in Disease (UAID) mission is “to empower students and communities to eliminate health inequities.”
The objective of the Johns Hopkins University UAID chapter is to discuss health inequities--"unjust and preventable differences in health between groups of people"--within nearby communities and implement projects to alleviate the impact of these inequalities. We differ from other community service organizations by tackling different public health concerns annually. In 2019-2020, UAID will focus on the issue of domestic violence in Baltimore. We will also hold on-campus events, speaker series, film screenings, and panel discussions concerning this issue (and other public health-related issues).
