Camara Phyllis Jones, MD, MPH, PhD is Senior Fellow at the Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine, and President-Elect of the American Public Health Association. Dr. Jones is a family physician and epidemiologist whose work focuses on the impacts of racism on the health and well-being of the nation. She seeks to broaden the national health debate to include not only universal access to high quality health care, but also attention to the social determinants of health (including poverty) and the social determinants of equity (including racism). As a teacher, her allegories on "race" and racism illuminate topics that are otherwise difficult for many Americans to understand or discuss. She hopes through her work to initiate a national conversation on racism that will eventually lead to a National Campaign Against Racism.
Registration of 25 participants. If interested in participating in a workshop please register for the specific workshop and general admission. Please only register for one workshop.
