    Charmed Center Johns Hopkins University The mission of the NIEHS P30 Core Center , Community Health Addressing Regional Maryland Environmental Determinants of Disease (CHARMED) is to build capacity in community-engaged research aimed at understanding the mechanistic links between environmental exposures and adverse health outcomes and translate these findings into action to improve the health and well-being of vulnerable individuals in communities across the greater Maryland region. We are building partnerships with communities of the greater Baltimore region (from Washington, DC through Baltimore, MD and including some regions of Pennsylvania) to address their environmental concerns. ss

  • Environmental Justice Report | JHU Charmed Center

    Please join us for a special convening organized by the Com munity of Curtis Bay Association (CCBA) a nd the South Baltimore Community Land Trust (SBCLT) , who are community co-leads of the CHARMED Center Community Engagement Core (CEC) and member of the Environmental Justice Partnerships Board (EJPB). The CHARMED Center CEC would like to highlight this community convening as a special monthly gathering of the EJPB and invite all EJPB stakeholders to attend in person or tune in via Zoom. Details are provided below by SBCLT and CCBA. YOU'RE INVITED: Environmental Justice Report coming on Dec 14th Dear Friend, Join us on Thursday, Dec 14th at 7pm for the release of a key new report containing findings into decades long unanswered resident concerns about the connection between the transport and storage of millions of tons of coal in Baltimore and our health. Namely, is the dark dust I find on the inside and outside of my home coal dust? How far is coal dust detectable offsite from the uncovered terminal and rail line? How quickly does coal dust accumulate offsite? How can this impact my health and the health of my friends and neighbors? Thanks to strong resident leadership across South Baltimore communities and partners at the CHARMED Center committed to making scientific tools available in service of shedding light on environmental justice concerns - we have relevant and timely information to share in the form of a collaborative report developed by community, academic and governmental partners at the Maryland Department of Environment. The meeting on Dec 14th will feature the release of new findings in the collaborative report as well as an opportunity for public comments to be made directly to MDE as they prepare to draft a new permit for the CSX open air coal terminal in Curtis Bay. Click here to register for the free event and spread the word to your network. Listen to and share the NPR coverage along with the petition for a phase out of coal at the terminal to a safer material with stronger standards and per-ton community impact fees during the just transition with MDE Secretary Serena McIlwain . Note that Governor Moore has yet to reply to the Community of Curtis Bay Association's request for meetings since the CSX coal explosion nearly two years ago! You can help make sure this issue is not ignored any longer by contacting him here and inviting him to attend on December 14th! ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ W hat happens after the December 14th meeting? After the collaborative report is released on December 14th, MDE has committed to take public comments and new research findings into account as they draft a new operating permit for the CSX coal terminal. Note, that residents have made complaints to MDE about coal dust from the terminal going back at least a decade when permit decisions were being made and no substantial changes were required. When MDE releases the draft permit for public comment in the new year, we will get our first indication as to whether or not MDE and Gov. Moore are prepared to act on their commitments to environmental justice. We must be prepared to continue to engage and act throughout this process, and beyond, so our needs for a healthy and safe community are not restricted by what is deemed politically possible. ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ Thank you a ll and let's continue to make the environmental and economic justice work we mapped out together a reality! ​ SYSTEMATIC APPROACH to Environmen tal Justice, Zero Waste & Community Economic Development (our guiding framework) Create relief and equitable development funds, through per ton fees and other mechanisms, for the communities that have hosted toxic waste and polluting infrastructure for decades. Set stronger standards that protect our health, workers and the environment, including a cumulative impacts law protecting overburdened communities. Establish protections for workers as we transition from outdated technologies to current approaches. Build and strengthen local end markets for compost and recycled commodities and other sustainable materials. End subsidies for the incinerators, landfills and polluting industry we are transitioning away from.

  • Cardiorespiratory Health and Airborne Contaminants

    < Back to Research Group List Cardiorespiratory Health and Airborne Contaminants Kirsten Koehler and Meredith McCormack T here is a high prevalence of cardiovascular, pulmonary, and neurodegenerative diseases in the Maryland region. Many researchers are engaged in studying the health outcomes of these vulnerable populations without a robust scientific interaction with exposure scientists. This TRG is led by Kirsten Koehler (Associate Professor), who is an exposure assessment expert, and co-led by Meredith McCormack, (Associate Professor, JHU School of Medicine) and expert in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with asthma and COPD. Our focus is on defining the contribution of exposure to air contaminants (e.g., PM2.5, gases, vapors, allergens) prevalent in the Maryland region to a range of cardiorespiratory health outcomes including asthma, cardiovascular disease, COPD, and autism. This working group will enable such interactions to catapult the impact of ongoing NIEHS supported research as well as spearhead new scientific directions ( Figure ). Innovations in exposure science coupled with health outcomes in the population can help unravel environmental determinants of diseases in vulnerable populations. ​ Previous Next
