Highlights from the National Academies' Vibrant and Health Kids: Aligning Science, Practice and Policy to Advance Health Equity
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a committee in 2019 to produce a report outlining steps needed to move children who are at risk for negative outcomes toward positive health trajectories, reducing health disparities. The committee recommended a range of short-and long term changes to practice, policy, and systems and a suite of strategies crucial to advancing health equity. Dr. DeVoe had the honor of chairing this committee and will share highlights from this National Academies’ report, entitled: Vibrant and Health Kids: Aligning Science, Practice and Policy to Advance Health Equity.
Dr. Jennifer (Jen) DeVoe is a practicing family physician and health services researcher based in Portland, Oregon. As the Chair of the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) Department of Family Medicine, she oversees nearly 200 faculty, 72 resident physicians, and several of OHSU’s primary care clinics. DeVoe also serves as the inaugural director of OHSU’s new Center for Primary Care Research and Innovation and was recently awarded a P50 grant from the National Cancer Institute to develop the BRIDGE-C2 Center (Building Research in Implementation & Dissemination to Close Gaps and Achieve Equity in Cancer Control Center).
Dr. DeVoe holds joint appointments in the OHSU Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology, the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health, and at the Kaiser Permanente Northwest Center for Health Research. She was elected to the National Academy of Medicine in 2014
