Johns Hopkins Baby Shower — Expectant and new parents are invited to the Johns Hopkins Baby Shower, from 3 to 5 p.m., Tuesday, May 1, on the East Baltimore campus.

Johns Hopkins offers a variety of services to support JHU faculty and staff and JHH/JHHSC employees during the life transition of having a baby. Among the topics to be discussed at the shower are breastfeeding, choosing quality child care, postpartum depression and car seat safety. Participants can meet with a benefits representative to review their employee benefits package, or network with other expectant and new mothers and fathers. Men will have the opportunity to join other dads to discuss bonding with the baby or adjusting to new schedules. Guests can enter a drawing to win prizes.

Register online at hopkinsworklife.org/babyshower or contact the Office of Work, Life and Engagement at 443-997-7000. The deadline for registration is Friday, April 27.

Sixth Annual Fiesta 5K — The sixth annual Fiesta 5K will be held Saturday, May 5, at Power Plant Live in downtown Baltimore. Funds raised from this event support the Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins, the only international scientific operation dedicated solely to curing ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Last year the event attracted 2,400 runners and walkers, making it one of the top 10 races in Baltimore. To support Fiesta 5K, you can start your own team, sign up for the Neurology department’s team Neuro-to-Go or sign up to walk or run on your own. Volunteers are also needed to help on the day of the event. For more information or to sign up, go to fiesta5k.com.
