The ABC files cover every facet of Baker’s professional working life, including research; committee work within the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health; her teaching at Hopkins, as well as external projects to educate professionals about safety issues in their field; and her efforts toward developing the injury control program at Johns Hopkins.
