Our students are leading the charge! "Stand Against Sitting" is a new campaign to encourage office workers, hard-working students, and generally anyone who works around a desk to take periodic “standing breaks” throughout the day. Breaking up extended periods of sedentary time has wonderful health benefits, and can even improve your mood. Stand up for health! Stand against sitting!

In honor of Black History Month, we’d like to shine a spotlight on Reginald G. James, the first African-American graduate of Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Dr. James (MPH ’46) was a Public Health Service officer and a Rockefeller Foundation fellow who had previously worked in the Alabama Health Department’s venereal disease survey and treatment program. He went on to a long career in the PHS after his graduation.
