The Center for Health Education and Well-Being cultivates and supports holistic well-being for individuals, relationships, groups, and the JHU community at-large across all schools and divisions. As a result of programs, services, educational campaigns, leadership and engagement opportunities, students and learners will create positive habits and behaviors which will have a beneficial impact on academic success, personal development and long-term health and well-being.

A message for students from Center for Health Education and Well-Being (CHEW):

  • The CHEW office is operating with usual business hours (8:30-5:00 PM, Monday-Friday) primarily through phone and virtual meetings. To schedule a meeting, please send an email to jhuchew@jhu.edu or connect with a staff member on the staff page.
  • We invite you to attend our zoom office hours during the week to ask questions, gather resources, and schedule additional appointments.
  • CHEW is moving! Starting in October of 2021, we will be located in the newly renovated Ralph S. O’Connor Center for Recreation and Well-Being. In the meantime, we are mostly operating remotely for individual meetings, but in-person meetings are available by request.
    • CHEW will offer individual telephone or video (zoom or teams) appointments to include health and well-being consultations. A CHEW staff member will set up the video meeting and share the link with you, if that is the preferred option.
  • If you have experienced a situation of intimate partner violence or sexual misconduct or have questions about a related situation, please call the office number at at 410-516-5133 to reach a confidential staff member. If you are currently unsafe or need immediate attention, please call 911 or campus security at 410-516-4600.
