Speakers

Regina Benjamin, M.D., MBA
18th U.S. Surgeon General, Healthcare Disparity Expert and Preventative Medicine Advocate
As a rural family doctor serving poor communities, Dr. Benjamin has spent her career seeing the impact of healthcare disparities and the social determinants of health on several generations of patients in her community. As Surgeon General and founder/CEO of the Bayou Clinic and its partner organization, the Gulf States Health Policy Center in rural Alabama, she has been the driving force behind research and policies to promote equity and access. Taking a public and population health perspective, Dr. Benjamin reviews the range of social determinants, and explores practices and policies that will narrow the health gap.
