Humphrey Fellows Program
The Humphrey Fellows Program in the Department of Mental
Health at the Bloomberg School is seeking friendship host
families for 12 fellows from developing countries (selected
through the U.S. State Department), who will be living near
the Homewood campus while studying substance abuse and
other public health issues during the coming academic
The friendship host families enhance the fellows' stay
by answering questions about living in the United States,
meeting them on arrival in August if possible, inviting
them into their homes for occasional dinners and on
holidays, perhaps taking them shopping or to a baseball
game and generally providing an "American citizen contact"
while they are here studying. The families are asked to
commit only for a year but may renew if they wish.
To befriend a Humphrey Program Fellow during his or
her stay in Baltimore, contact Dorothea Stieff at
410-752-3274, 410-614-6188, firstname.lastname@example.org or
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, initiated
by Congress in 1978, is administered by the Institute of
International Education in collaboration with a network of
U.S. universities, with primary support from the U.S.
Department of State.
Welch Library Electronic Resources
The Welch Medical Library invites the Johns Hopkins
community to participate in the selection process of
higher-end electronic resources by using and then providing
feedback on two databases, Isabel Diagnosis Reminder System
and the American College of Cardiology's Cardiosource.
Isabel helps the user find the correct diagnosis and
answers clinical questions; Cardiosource provides clinical
guidelines, case studies, expert opinions, a drug database
and results of clinical trials, among other topics.
To test either database, go to
www.welch.jhu.edu/eresources/etrials.cfm and submit
your comments. It is important to provide all the requested
information. The databases will be available for testing
and evaluation through July 31.
