Beilenson, Other City Leaders to Speak
at Johns Hopkins

Baltimore City Health Commissioner Peter Beilenson will present "The Health Gap: Addressing Inequality in Health Care in Baltimore City," at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 14, in Levering Hall's Glass Pavilion on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. His lecture launches the second annual student- run lecture series "All Politics is Local." Each lecture is free and open to the public.

Beilenson will discuss the city's strategies to address health care equality and what he anticipates to be the future of health care in Baltimore. He earned his master's degree in public health from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 1990. Beilenson is an associate in the school's Department of Population and Family Health Sciences.

In addition to Beilenson, the students are bringing to campus other local officials who will address the structural inequalities that prevent Baltimore's urban poor from attaining fair access to education, affordable housing, legal representation and adequate health care under the theme "Charm City? The Continuing Legacy of Inequality in Baltimore." All events take place at 8 p.m. and in the Glass Pavilion unless noted.
