Our fellowship recognizes the importance of cultural and individual differences and diversity in the training of psychologists. Additionally, we are committed to providing accessible, inclusive care to our patients and their families through a lens of cultural humility. We have a variety of training opportunities and resources available to our trainees at the departmental and institutional (Kennedy Krieger and The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine) level to help support this mission.

Kennedy Krieger Institute Office for Health, Equity, Inclusion, & Diversity (O-HEID)
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. As part of our EDI efforts, Kennedy Krieger supports the annual Room to Grow Conference, a multidisciplinary conference addressing a variety of topics in cultural humility.
