    Are you an academically advanced high school student looking for a fast-paced college-level learning experience and a chance to engage with like-minded peers? Summer at Hopkins offers an unrivaled opportunity to learn from Hopkins’ world-renowned instructors and connect with academically oriented students from around the globe.

    In the midst of a global pandemic that has shifted the ways in which we move, work, and interact with others around the world, it is more important than ever to have a deeper understanding of how outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics have evolved. You’ll review select communicable (COVID-19, Ebola, Zika, and HIV) and non-communicable (diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, injury, and mental health) diseases in public health around the world. Examine the global burden of these diseases and the various forms of prevention efforts undertaken by global and national organizations. This program will use a combination of lecture, discussion, and student presentation format to encourage broad participation.

    Prerequisite: There are no prerequisites for this program.
