15 Years of Partnering with Patients, Community, and Health System Partners to Improve Depression in Under-Resourced Communities
Join us to hear Dr. Bowen Chung ’93 and Felica Jones, CEO of Healthy African American Families II, speak on their community-based health interventions for underserved populations in Los Angeles. Dr. Chung, Associate Professor-in-Residence in Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at Geffen SOM’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, and Ms. Jones, his community-based research partner, will discuss their ongoing study focused on interventions for depression in African American communities. After leaving Williams with a degree in English, Chung earned his MD from Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in 1998, and his MPH at UCLA. His research addresses disparities in mental health treatment, chronic health conditions in low-income communities, and mental health needs of LGBTQ clients. This discussion will be of interest to all who are curious about real-world work at the intersection of medicine, psychology, and public health.
