Dr. Jenkins articulates his real-life experiences and enduring knowledge through powerful presentations, lasting empathy, and straight-talks to lead strategies focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion-to-action. He has successfully navigated academics, healthcare, and corporate arenas as both a thought-leader and consultant working with notable clients such as McKesson Pharmaceuticals, Johnson & Johnson, McDonald’s, Duke University, and Virginia Department of Health and Human Services.

His efforts in analyzing the link between racial stress and vascular-based diseases & Alzheimer’s disease has received an extensive commendation from the leading health and education authorities. Named among the 40 Under 40 Leaders in Health by the National Quality Forum, his contributions have been featured in media outlets such as ABC World News, The Grio, Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia Tribune, and NBC. Dr. Jenkins serves as a fellow within the Veteran’s Health Administration’s Office of Minority Health and on the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine’s Roundtable on Health Equity.
