I am the President and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the largest private foundation in the country devoted solely to improving health. For almost 50 years, RWJF has worked to ensure all people in the U.S. have a fair and just opportunity to thrive— no matter who they are, where they live, or how much money they have. We have seen throughout the pandemic that Black, Latino, and Indigenous people have suffered a disproportionate share of the health and economic consequences associated with Covid-19. At RWJF, we work each day to ensure that everyone has the chance to live the healthiest life possible—during the pandemic and beyond, and that means working to remove barriers to health that so many face.

I earned my medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania and completed a residency and chief residency in pediatrics at John Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. I have been a general pediatrician for more than 35 years and still see patients at the Henry J. Austin Center in Trenton, New Jersey.

My time at CDC included working as an infectious disease epidemiologist and four years in charge of emergency response and preparedness and serving as acting director of the agency in 2009 during the H1N1 pandemic. More recently, as part of our ongoing commitment to the health of our nation and its people, I’ve been helping people understand that while COVID has affected every community, it has not affected every community with the same intensity. I’ve also talked a lot about COVID-19 vaccines and other ways we can keep ourselves and our families and communities safe and healthy. Let’s talk about kids and COVID-19 vaccines. Ask me anything!
