IMPORTANT INFORMATION: About Probability Illustrations, Limitations, and Key Assumptions

The probability illustrations generated from the engine are “Monte Carlo” simulations of 500 possible investment scenarios for a given time period and assume a range of possible returns.

The illustrations are generated according to models developed by Morningstar Investment Management LLC, a leading independent provider of asset allocation, manager selection, and portfolio construction.

The Your Retirement Outlook® graphic reflects the difference between the model’s estimated annual income (which corresponds to a 70% probability level of income in the investment scenarios simulated) and your annual income goal.

When forecasting the probability of achieving your income goal, the model employs different returns for different asset classes, Morningstar Investment Management’s capital market assumptions developed using historical and forward-looking data.

Forecasts of expected return, expected standard deviation and correlation among asset classes Morningstar Investment Management LLC's proprietary equity, fixed income, currency and risk models.

Current assets are assigned to asset classes Morningstar Categories, and fees and charges inherent in investing are incorporated with an average fee assumption for each asset class. The benchmarks used for modeling the various asset classes are below.

Return assumptions are updated annually; these updates may have a material impact on your projections. Return assumptions are estimates not guarantees. The returns you experience may be materially different than projections. You cannot invest directly in an index.

Higher Risk/Volatility

Unless you choose otherwise or your employer supplies different information, the probability illustrations assume retirement at the age at which you qualify for full Social Security benefits and an annual retirement income goal of 80% of your projected final working salary.

Social Security estimates are the Social Security Administration methodology and your current salary.

The probability illustrations also assume a consistent contribution percentage and asset allocation (no future changes or rebalancing unless you are subscribed to a managed account or a target date asset allocation service), annual inflation of approximately 2%, and annual salary increases a calculation that incorporates multiple factors including a salary growth curve and inflation. Mortality assumptions are the Society of Actuaries tables.

The engine utilizes models, algorithms and/or calculations (“Models”). The Models are subject to a number of limitations. Returns associated with market extremes may occur more frequently than assumed in the Models. Some asset classes have relatively limited histories; for these classes the Models use historical data for shorter time periods.

The Model does not consider other asset classes such as hedge funds or private equity, which may have characteristics similar or superior to those used in the Model.

Capital market assumptions are forecasts which involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors which may cause the actual results to differ materially and/or substantially from any future results, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by those projections for any reason. Additionally, Models have inherent risks.

Models may incorrectly forecast future behavior or produce unexpected results resulting in losses.

The success of using Models depends on numerous factors, including the validity, accuracy and completeness of the Model’s development, implementation and maintenance, the Model’s assumptions, factors, algorithms and methodologies, and the accuracy and reliability of the supplied historical or other data. If incorrect data is entered into even a well-founded Model, the resulting information will be incorrect. Investments selected with the use of Models may perform differently than expected as a result of the design of the Model, inputs into the Model, or other factors.

There is no guarantee that your income goal will be achieved or that the aggregate accumulated amount will ensure a specified annual retirement income. Results may vary with each use and over time.

IMPORTANT: The projections or other information generated by the engine regarding the lihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results, and are not guarantees of future results.

Moreover, even though the tool’s estimates are statistically sound based upon the simulations it runs, the tool cannot foresee or account for every possible scenario that may negatively impact your financial situation.

Thus you should monitor your account regularly and base your investment decisions on your time horizon, risk tolerance, and personal financial situation, as well as on the information in the prospectuses for investments you consider.

Johns Hopkins Medicine Celebrates Opening of The Johns Hopkins National Proton Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital, in Collaboration With Children’s National

Voice Disorders | Johns Hopkins Medicine

Newswise — Pediatric and adult cancer patients in the District of Columbia and elsewhere will now have access to one of the most advanced, lifesaving proton technologies offered in the U.S. at the newly opened Johns Hopkins National Proton Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital in collaboration with Children’s National Hospital

The new Johns Hopkins National Proton Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital is part of the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center in Baltimore, Maryland. U.S.

News & World Report recently ranked the Kimmel Cancer Center 4th in the nation in its annual ranking of best hospitals. Through its collaboration with Children’s National Hospital — rated by U.S.

News & World Report as one of the top ten nationally for pediatric cancer care – Sibley houses the only proton center in the Greater Washington, D.C. region with a dedicated pediatric team. 

Adults and children are now being seen at the 80,000+ square foot proton center, one of the largest and most advanced such facilities in the nation.

The proton collaboration with Children’s National Hospital represents an expansion of the earlier collaboration between Children’s and Johns Hopkins Medicine that established the pediatric radiation oncology program at Sibley, which treats a broad range of children’s cancers.

This project is yet another example of how John Hopkins is moving boldly into the future to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible,” said Paul Rothman, dean and CEO, Johns Hopkins Medicine. “With this center, we can now provide another cutting-edge option in cancer care, an option that will make a real difference in the lives of many patients.” said Paul Rothman, Dean and CEO, Johns Hopkins Medicine.

According to Kevin Sowers, President of the Johns Hopkins Health System and Executive Vice President, Johns Hopkins Medicine, “Our program has leading experts that understand the entire patient and their cancer, not just proton therapy, allowing them to help patients receive the best care possible for their particular needs.”

“This collaboration between the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, Sibley Memorial Hospital and Children’s National Hospital will transform cancer care throughout D.C., this region and beyond,” said Hasan Zia, MD., interim president and CEO of Sibley Memorial Hospital.

“We’re doing more than just providing the most advanced proton therapy available.

We will be conducting groundbreaking research that will potentially help expand this technology for use in treating other types of cancers while at the same time helping improve the effectiveness of the proton treatments for the cancers currently most amenable to proton therapy.”

The new proton center offers state-of-the-art pencil beam proton therapy equipment, as well as next-generation imaging technologies such as dual energy CT-guided treatment that reduces the range of error, and the latest innovation in biomatrix MRI designed to target moving tumors in places the lung and liver. A large mechanical arm called a gantry can move the beam 360 degrees around the patient, treating the tumor from several angles as it destroys tumor cells layer by layer.

“The opening of the proton therapy center will offer the most advanced cancer treatment to help kids lead better lives,” says Dr. Kurt Newman, president and CEO of Children’s National. “Not only does this allow children in our region to receive proton therapy closer to home, but the center is one of a few nationally that will have a dedicated pediatric team.”

“Proton therapy is an advanced technology that allows radiation to be delivered precisely to cancer tissue,” says Jeffrey Dome, M.D., Ph.D., vice president for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children’s National Hospital.

 “This provides a significant advantage compared to conventional radiation therapy, especially in children, where sparing the healthy tissue that surrounds the tumor may be critical for normal growth and development.

Proton therapy shows great promise to reduce long-term side effects of radiation treatment.”

The Johns Hopkins National Proton Center at Sibley will also have a fully integrated research room, which will allow clinical, basic science, and medical physics faculty to advance clinical trial research, translational research, and technology development research in proton therapy.

There, experts will lead efforts to study proton outcomes for sarcoma, gynecological tumors, pancreatic and liver tumors, lymph node cancers and tumors located near the heart and major blood vessels such as lung or breast cancers. In addition, the researchers will examine how the cancer cell-killing proton energy interacts with the cells and tissue surrounding the tumors.

New advances in proton therapy will thus be developed and quickly translated into clinical practice.

“Our center is one of only a few academic programs in the country with a team conducting biologic research to improve proton therapy in addition to clinical trials comparing proton and more traditional photon therapy,” says William Nelson, MD.

Director of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins. “This research is critical to determining which type of treatment is best for each individual situation.

Through this work, our researchers will provide the knowledge necessary to make cancer treatment more personal, precise and effective.”

 “Proton therapy is advanced radiation treatment that is directed precisely at cancerous tissue in adults and children,” says Akila Viswanathan, MD., interim director of the Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences for Johns Hopkins Medicine.

“This is a significant improvement over conventional radiation treatment for many cancers, especially in children, which has a greater risk of damaging the healthy tissue surrounding the tumor.

Conventional therapy carries the risk of causing health issues that manifest themselves long after treatment, such as cognitive or development impairments or heart disorders.”

“Children with cancer will have access to the highest level of care from specialists dedicated to caring for children,” says Matthew Ladra, M.D.

, Director of Pediatric Radiation Oncology at the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital “This is far more than an investment in expensive pieces of machinery. This is a collaboration that establishes a unique care continuum centered on pediatric oncology patients and their families.

It brings together national and international leaders in academic research and clinical medicine to collaborate on the goal of advancing pediatric oncology treatment.”

Dr. Christina Tsien has been appointed proton center medical director and Dr. Curtiland Deville will serve as the associate proton director, while maintaining his role as the clinical director for the Radiation Oncology Clinic at Sibley Memorial Hospital.

In addition, through a strategic partnership with Howard University, the proton center will serve as an educational and training site for students enrolled in Howard’s medical physics program.  

The Johns Hopkins National Proton Center is opening in phases. The first treatment room opens in October 2019. The second room is scheduled to open in spring 2020, and the third room and fixed beam research room are scheduled to open in fall 2020.

About the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center

Since its opening in 1973, The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center has led the world in deciphering the mechanisms of cancer and new ways to treat it.

  The strength of our research and treatment programs was recognized early on by the National Cancer Institute, becoming one of the first to earn comprehensive cancer center status and recognition as a “Center of Excellence.

” The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center has active programs in clinical research, laboratory research, education, community outreach, and prevention and control. Patients who visit the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins have access to some of the most innovative and advanced therapies in the world.

Because Kimmel Cancer Center clinicians and research scientists work closely together, new drugs and treatments developed in the laboratory are quickly transferred to the clinical setting, offering patients innovative therapeutic options. For more information, visit hopkinscancer.org.

Serving Baltimore since 1889

The Johns Hopkins Hospital was considered a municipal and national marvel when it opened in 1889. At the time, it was believed to be the largest medical center in the country with 17 buildings, 330 beds, 25 physicians and 200 employees!

So, who was Johns Hopkins? And what’s with that extra “s”?  Well, Johns Hopkins was born on May 19, 1795, in Anne Arundel County, Md., the second of 11 children of a tobacco farmer. His grandmother’s maiden name was Johns, which is why it’s not John Hopkins but Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Contrary to local legend, Johns Hopkins wasn’t born poor. He grew up in Whitehall, a huge plantation that the King of England had given his great-grandfather. But this all changed when he was 12.

His Quaker parents, spurred on by the new abolitionist stance of the Society of Friends, freed their hundreds of slaves. As a result, Johns’ formal education ended and he was sent out into the fields.

Johns left home at 17 for Baltimore and a job in business with an uncle, then established his own mercantile house at the age of 24.

He was an important investor in the nation’s first major railroad, the Baltimore and Ohio, and became a director in 1847 and chairman of its finance committee in 1855.

In 1867, Hopkins arranged for the incorporation of The Johns Hopkins University and The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and for the appointment of a 12-member board of trustees for each.

He died on Christmas Eve 1873, leaving $7 million to be divided equally between the two institutions. It was, at the time, the largest philanthropic donation in U.S. history!
