U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski and her staff visited Johns
Hopkins on Feb. 13 to meet with Edward Miller, dean of the
School of Medicine and CEO of Johns Hopkins Medicine;
Ronald Peterson, president of the hospital and health
system; and Linda Robertson, vice president for government,
community and public affairs.
The meeting, held in Miller's office in the SOM
Administration Building, coincided with the start of the
U.S. legislative session and the release of the Bush
administration's fiscal year 2005 budget.
Specifically, the group discussed some of Johns
Hopkins' legislative and universitywide priorities for the
coming year, among them the budget of the National
Institutes of Health, a primary source of research funding
at Johns Hopkins; the physical growth of the East Baltimore
campus; reauthorization of the Higher Education Act;
Medicare legislation; and Homeland Security efforts, namely
the work of the Johns Hopkins
Office of Critical
Event Preparedness and Response, known as CEPAR.
Mikulski sits on both the Senate's Appropriations
Committee and its Health, Education, Labor and Pensions
