As graduate workers at Johns Hopkins’ Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, we recognize can’t afford to get sick. Johns Hopkins may boast a top-ranking medical school and world-renowned hospital, but our healthcare plan is so poor that we cannot afford to take care of ourselves in the most routine of ways. For many of us, a $1,000 hospitalization co-pay is financially catastrophic. If you are a graduate student at JHU, you have probably had some bad experiences yourself, or witnessed your friends’ hardship. That is why we made it our priority to pressure the administration to rethink our current healthcare plan and launched a healthcare campaign. Visit our webpage on Healthcare for more information.
