For the Berman Institute of Bioethics’ “Visions of Hope II” project, to improve the quality of healthcare for young people suffering from the chronic, life-threatening diseases of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and Sickle Cell Disease.

Training materials include documentary films, an accompanying curriculum, and training sessions for clinicians around the world.

Established in 1995, the Berman Institute of Bioethics conducts advanced scholarship on the ethics of clinical practice, biomedical science, and public health, both locally and globally, and engages students, trainees, the public, and policy-makers in serious discourse about these issues. Johns Hopkins University was founded in 1876 and is a world leader in teaching and research.
