MPHA’s Virtual Breakfast Honoring Dr. Camara Jones

September 18, 2020, 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM

Camara Phyllis Jones, MD, MPH, PhD
Radcliffe Institute Fellow
Former President,
American Public Health Association

We hope you can join MPHA for our upcoming Virtual Breakfast on September 18th to honor Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones! During this event, we will hear from this public health luminary and present her with MPHA’s Paul Revere Award for her unwavering commitment to eradicate health inequities and structural racism. Dr. Jones’ legacy inspires MPHA’s work every day, and we are excited to hear from her during such a crucial time, as we fight for both public health and racial justice. 

This event is an opportunity for public health students, professionals, and activists from across MA to come together and be energized by each other and by Dr. Jones’ words as we prepare for the critically important advocacy work that lies ahead. 

This is an important fundraiser for MPHA, and we hope that many of you will be inspired to help support our advocacy work. However, in order to make this event as accessible as possible, tickets do not have a set price. 

We ask that you pay what you can.
