In 2012, the Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing (JHSON) was selected to provide leadership in implementing a coordinated health program at the Elmer A. Henderson: A Johns Hopkins Partnership School and the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Early Childhood Center, known collectively as Henderson-Hopkins (HH). (The school community moved to its new building and campus during 2013.) The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) method combines elements of the traditional coordinated school health program (a CDC initiative) and the Whole Child Approach (an education initiative) to present a unified and collaborative plan for learning and health. This model focuses on the whole school, drawing resources and influences from the whole community, and addresses the needs of the whole child. The primary way Henderson-Hopkins achieves this goal is through wellness programming for students, staff, and families.
The Henderson-Hopkins School Wellness Program provides opportunities for students in nursing, public health, and medicine to engage in service learning activities in the East Baltimore community.
