Roger C. Lipitz Center for Integrated Health Care &
The Eugene and Mildred Lipitz Professorship

The Roger C. Lipitz Center for Integrated Health Care and the Eugene and Mildred Lipitz Professorship were created in 1998 through a generous gift from Roger and Flo Lipitz and the Lipitz Family Foundation to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The Center was established to serve as a catalyst for evidence-informed health policy to benefit the lives of persons with disabilities and complex health needs. The Professorship honors Roger’s parents (Eugene and Mildred, pictured above with their children, Roger and Alison), who were early leaders in nursing home care.  Roger continued in this career path and was instrumental in building the field in Maryland, serving as chair of the board of Meridian Healthcare, the largest provider of long-term care services in Maryland at the time, and president of both the American Health Care Association and the Maryland Nursing Home Association. Mr. Lipitz has a longstanding commitment to helping others through civic activities. He is a trustee emeritus of the Johns Hopkins University and former chair of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health’s Advisory Board. 

The Lipitz Center is directed by Jennifer Wolff, PhD, MHS, the third Eugene and Mildred Lipitz Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management, succeeding Karen Davis, PhD and Chad Boult, MD, MPH, MBA.
