Series on Racism and Aging: As the World Turns
The Penn's Village Inclusiveness and Diversity Committee is proud to present Dr. Kevin Ahmaad Jenkins, a two-time award-winning national journalist, health-disparities activist, and dynamic speaker, who will engage us in a talk focused on the effects of racism on aging and older adults.
Dr. Jenkins’ work centers on breaking the social stigmas relating to racial injustice in the fields of healthcare, organizational culture, and executive leadership. He has been commended for his analysis of the link between racial stress and vascular-based diseases.
Dr. Jenkins’ talk will include suggested action items that Penn’s Villagers can implement to improve equity and reduce racism in our community as well as in the community at large.
Dr. Jenkins’ presentation will be the keynote for a series of Penn’s Village discussions planned for 2023 on themes such as confronting and righting effects of inequities in education, health and healthcare, earning power and lifelong wealth.
Wednesday, December 7, 2022, 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
