The partnership with Morgan State University, the Maryland Institute College of Art Center for Social Design and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s International Vaccine Access Center has formed committees focused on the specific concerns of various groups, including residents who are older, homeless, disabled or pregnant, as well as the city’s immigrant, Latino and Orthodox Jewish communities.
