Jennifer Edgoose, MD, MPH (Associate Professor [CHS]), has been selected as one of five University of Wisconsin-Madison Outstanding Women of Color for 2018-2019.
Dr. Edgoose was chosen for her efforts to create a definition of “continuity of care” reaching far beyond clinic walls to address food insecurity, educational outcomes, housing issues and neighborhood perceptions of safety. To accomplish this, she has built strong collaborations with educators, firefighters, county public health workers, fellow physicians and policy makers.
In addition, she has infused social justice principles into a robust curriculum on community and population health and successfully disseminated health equity curricula on a national level.
She is devoted to mentorship and committed to opening doors, supporting the career success of fellow people of color, and creating a more inclusive and representative health care workforce.
Dr. Edgoose and the other honorees will be celebrated at the 11th annual Outstanding Women of Color Awards Reception on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Alumni Lounge of the Pyle Center.
