Meet the Organizer: Jennifer Lee

Ms. Lee is dedicated to making an impact on the world by addressing health inequities, disparities and social determinants of health in disenfranchised communities that experience extreme poverty, economic inequality, limited social support and poor governance.  Through the lens of resiliency, community empowerment, advocacy/social justice movements, community-based participatory research, and a strengths-based approach, her research and work provides a pathway for individuals and communities to make changes through explicit aims at social and political change.  While addressing the social, cultural, political and economic determinants that underpin health, she also seeks to build partnerships with other sectors in finding innovative solutions.
