Our Mission

The Office for Health, Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity (O-HEID) exists to uphold Kennedy Krieger Institute’s commitment to a culture of health, equity, diversity, and inclusion for everyone we serve. We are dedicated to removing the barriers of social injustice and inequities by promoting health equity and social justice principals through anti-racist programs and policies. In addition, O-HEID educates those who, work, train and receive services at the Institute through culturally relevant, evidence- and equity-based approaches that assure diversity and inclusion.
