Camara P. Jones, MD, MPH, PhD, President, American Public Health Association (APHA)
Dr. Jones is a research director on social determinants of health and equity in the Division of Adult and Community Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion and President of the American Public Health Association (APHA). 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 methodologist, she has developed new ways for comparing full distributions of data (rather than means or proportions) in order to investigate population-level risk factors and propose population-level interventions.
Tackling the Opioid Epidemic at the Federal, State, and Local Levels
Senator Chris Murphy's Director of Community Affairs, Sean Scanlon, has been invited to sit on a panel of policymakers, research scientists, and overdose prevention advocates to tackle the conversation on the opioid epidemic and provide insight what is being done at the local, state, and federal level to better understand opioid abuse and reduce exposure in the community. Explore how advocates are working hard to improve community efforts to prevent dependence and improve overdose outcomes.
