Representatives from JHU and JHHS Office of Benefits & Worklife will offer brief presentations regarding employee benefits, leave, child care, and lactation support. In addition, Hopkins programs and local vendors will be available to share their resources and expertise.
According to Jeanne Ruckert Lovy, director of Family Support Services, "the baby shower is one of the most fun and well-attended events of the year" and also a "great way to meet other new and expecting parents at Hopkins."
The Baby Shower will take place on Thursday, Feb. 6, between 2:30 and 5 p.m. at the Turner Concourse on the East Baltimore campus.
