From broken community partnerships to diminished funding, how do we overcome the 21st Century Challenges of Health Equity? This presentation motivates clinicians, researchers, and healthcare leaders to explore the role, recognition, and remediation of inequity in medicine. This presentation teaches healthcare providers and biomedical researchers how to clinically confront the deadly "isms" that prevent quality care and public wellness. In addition, Dr. Jenkins will be addressing the important issues of systemic racism and unconscious/implicit bias and the impact that they will have on delivering quality care to all.

Kevin Ahmaad Jenkins, Ph.D., is the Core Investigator at the Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion (CHERP) at the Corporal Crescenz VA Medical Center in Philadelphia.
Jenkins is a two-time award winner national journalist who examines the influence of race, racism, and psychosocial stress within medicine. He leads research studies that analyze how stress lethally interacts with vascular-based diseases (e.g., heart disease, chronic kidney disease, and diabetes) and Alzheimer’s Disease in high-risk subgroups within the Black community. To best understand how racism makes people sick, Jenkins and his research team work with former professional football players, veterans, and people living with vascular-based diseases to create family-centered culturally sensitive and competent interventions.
