Day at the Market is an outreach and engagement program launched in 2016 at the Northeast Market, located adjacent to the Johns Hopkins University East Baltimore campus. This program aims to not only share health and wellness information, but to serve as a learning tool for being a better partner with the community, as a dissemination vehicle to return what they have learned to the community, and to bridge the gap between the local community and Johns Hopkins University.

Join us Thursday, March 14, from 2:30-5:30 pm in Tilghman Auditorium to learn about the Chesapeake Regional Information System for our Patients (CRISP) database.  CRISP allows users to easily check if a consented research participant has been seen in an emergency room or been hospitalized anywhere in Maryland (and in some surrounding areas). The CRISP research initiative affords many studies and projects efficient electronic access to consented-participant records outside of the JHM environment.

Speakers will highlight studies that utilized data obtained from CRISP and will share how prospective investigators can facilitate their clinical research by using the database.
