CHHS Expands to Universities at Shady Grove

The University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security, currently based out of the school’s Baltimore campus, is opening an office at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) in Rockville.

The center, which works on emergency policies and response strategies to large-scale disasters, said the move will put it closer to D.C. clients and the federal government and will also allow it to partner with the university on internships, classes and research.

The center currently works with the cities of Rockville, Takoma Park, Gaithersburg and Chevy Chase and with groups such as the D.C. Homeland Security & Emergency Management Agency, regional hospitals and the Montgomery County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

Seven employees will fill the space at USG’s 9630 Gudelsky Drive campus.
