Overview

"Why Diversity Matters for Addiction Treatment and Prevention" 

This session features BIG IDEAS that are shaping the future of addiction medicine, and this year is all about diversity and health equity. First, draw inspiration as ASAM President Paul H. Earley, MD, DFASAM, recognizes award recipients with personalized video clips of these individuals who have made major contributions to the field. ASAM Board Member Brian Hurley, MD, MBA, DFASAM, will then introduce the Deputy Director of the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities, followed by world-renowned civil rights activist and icon, and moderate an engaging Q&A with these distinguished experts.

Dr. Monica Webb Hooper will discuss the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) recommendations to address health disparities and achieve equity in patient care, taking into account patient-provider and community-wide interventions.

Dr. Camara Phyllis Jones will make the case that it is important to name racism because racism is foundational in our nation’s history and yet many people are in staunch denial of its continued existence and profoundly negative impacts on the health and well-being of the nation. She will share allegories and definitions to illustrate four key messages when naming racism: racism exists; racism is a system; racism saps the strength of the whole society; and we can act to dismantle racism.

ASAM Media Awards - Claudia Black, MSW, PhD & Navdeep Kang PsyD, HSP, CGP
ASAM Annual Award  " Martha J. Wunsch, MD, FAAP, DFASAM

Camara Phyllis Jones

MD, MPH, PhD

Camara Phyllis Jones is a family physician and epidemiologist whose work focuses on naming, measuring, and addressing the impacts of racism on the health and well-being of the nation. She is a past president of the American Public Health Association, a senior fellow at the Morehouse School of Medicine, and an adjunct professor at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University.

Racism is a system of structuring opportunity and assigning value based on the social interpretation of how one looks (which is what we call “race”), which unfairly disadvantages some individuals and communities, unfairly advantages other individuals and communities, and saps the strength of the whole society through the waste of human resources. While at Radcliffe, Jones is developing tools to inspire, equip, and engage all Americans in a national campaign against racism. For example, her allegories on “race” and racism illuminate topics that are otherwise difficult for many Americans to understand or discuss. Her toolbox will equip both children and adults to name racism, ask “How is racism operating here?” and organize and strategize to act.

Jones earned her BA in molecular biology from Wellesley College, her MD from the Stanford School of Medicine, and both her master of public health and her PhD in epidemiology from the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health. She also completed residency training in general preventive medicine at Johns Hopkins and in family medicine at the Residency Program in Social Medicine at Montefiore Medical Center.

Dr. Webb Hooper is an internationally recognized translational behavioral scientist and licensed clinical health psychologist. She has dedicated her career to the scientific study of minority health and racial/ethnic disparities, focusing on chronic illness prevention and health behavior change. Her program of community engaged research focuses on understanding multilevel factors and biopsychosocial mechanisms underlying modifiable risk factors, such as tobacco use and stress processes, and the development of community responsive and culturally specific interventions. 

Before joining NIMHD, Dr. Webb Hooper was a Professor of Oncology, Family Medicine & Community Health and Psychological Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. She was also Associate Director for Cancer Disparities Research and Director of the Office of Cancer Disparities Research in the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center. During her time as a professor, Dr. Webb Hooper directed the Tobacco, Obesity, and Oncology Laboratory, was principal investigator of multiple federal and foundation grants, and trained dozens of underrepresented trainees at all levels.
