Please join the Healthcare Club, BMA, P@K, AMA and HMA in a panel discussion with Dr. Maya Green and Dr. Monique Jindal on disparities, inequity and discrimination within the healthcare system for minority communities. The panel will speak broadly to structural societal racism and provide an evidence-based investigation into racism within healthcare. Additionally, Dr. Jindal will discuss the impact of policing on healthcare outcomes for African American Youth and Dr. Green will speak to challenges and biases faced by the LGBTQ community within healthcare.

Dr. Maya Green is a proud south side Chicagoan, who formerly served as an educator in the private and public school sectors. After obtaining her MD/MPH with a focus on Health Policy and Administration at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she completed a residency in family medicine at the University of Miami and a specialty fellowship in HIV medicine at Rush University Medical Center. She previously worked as an HIV specialist at the Ruth M. Rothstein CORE Center, and now serves as the Regional Medical Director for Howard Brown Health’s South Region clinics. Her client panels include those who speak Spanish or American Sign Language and who experience substance use disorder. Dr. Green is the founder of HIV Real Talk – NFP and a board member of Chicago Task Force Prevention & Community Services, both of which focus on decreasing disparities among Chicago’s marginalized communities.

Dr. Monique Jindal is a general academics fellow and internal medicine-pediatrics physician at Johns Hopkins Medical Institution. Her career is focused on understanding the impact of racism on health equity for minority communities and designing provider- and community-level interventions to combat racial health disparities. During her chief residency, she designed and implemented a curriculum to address racism in medicine and was subsequently awarded a national grant to study its impact on medical trainees. Her other work focuses on the impact of policing on health for black youth as well as the impact of diverse representation within children's literature on racial identity development. Dr. Jindal was recently designated from the National Minority Quality Forum as a 40 under 40 leader in minority health. She completed her B.A in Spanish, medical degree and residency training at the University of Cincinnati and is currently pursing her MPH degree at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
