Dr. Camara Jones: On Health & Equity...coming soon

We will be posting video clips from an interview with Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones, Senior Fellow with the Satcher Health Leadership Institute. They will be available on the TWS blog. We hope that you will find them helpful in sparking reflection and dialogue in your communities for capacity building and social change.

Dr. Jones is a family physician and epidemiologist whose pioneering work focuses on the impacts of racism on the health and well-being of the nation. She was the former Research Director on Social Determinants of Health and Equity at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

As a teacher, Dr. Jones is internationally recognized for her allegories on racism and the structural causes of health inequities. 

Our vision for our TWS Phase II study was to develop and test an approach for promotoras or lay health educators that was more than just another silo health program. We wanted to simultaneously cultivate the mindset and skills that foster empowerment and equity while teaching prenatal education. So our community-based participatory research began with an orientation in collaboration with Just Health Action.  

As part of this process, we used Dr. Jones' story, The Gardner's Tale, which addresses the three levels of racism, and two video segments from the PBS series, Unnatural Causes, one of which featured Dr. Jones. Given her inspiration and help in setting a broader health equity frame at the outset, we were honored to conclude the Phase II study with an in-person interview with Dr. Jones. We deeply appreciate and value her support and participation in a short video on the impact of implementing the TWS program in the community.
