The university has developed special COVID-19 guidelines and resources to help students and postdocs face the many challenges of this ongoing pandemic.
All postdoctoral fellows at JHU receive comprehensive health insurance through Johns Hopkins EHP. For primary care, University Health Services is available for postdocs at the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Public Health and the Berman Institute, and postdocs at the Schools of Engineering and Arts and Sciences can use the Student Health and Wellness Center.
Through the mySupport Program, post docs and their household family members now have access to up to five counseling sessions at no cost. In addition, mySupport brings together a variety of helpful services to ease the daily life stressors individuals face. By calling, 443-997-7000 and pressing option #2, post docs can access verified referrals for daily assistance, such as child care and elder care, recommendations for convenience services, including pet care, lawn care, legal or financial guidance, and identity theft consultations. See HUB article for more information.
Although indoor activities at the athletic centers are currently closed due to the pandemic, the Ralph S. O’Connor Recreation Center is offering virtual circuit-based workouts and Experiential Education; the Denton Cooley Center based in east Baltimore is offering virtual and outdoor fitness classes.
