  • Flier for Honor a Star campaign
    Honor a Star/Diversity Award

    Consider honoring a special person or persons at this year’s An Evening with the Stars celebration, 6-8 p.m. Thursday. November 10. Not only will that person receive recognition, but your support will help raise important scholarship funds for future Hopkins Nurses from our Baltimore community. Purchasing a star in someone’s honor leads to: Your tax-deductible gift directly benefiting JHSON’s Baltimore Talent Scholars Fund; the person you are honoring receiving a notification letter from JHSON; that person’s name displayed at this year’s event; and that person’s name included in this year’s event program.

    And while you’re there, please take advantage of the opportunity to nominate a colleague for the School of Nursing Diversity Award.
