Donate to the Minority Health Conference in honor of Dr. Bill Jenkins 

William Carter (Bill) Jenkins, Ph.D., was a founder of the Minority Health Conference, and alumnus and adjunct professor of epidemiology at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. Throughout his life, Jenkins was a staunch advocate for minority health and witness against racism. His passing last year just days before the 40th Annual Minority Health Conference was especially poignant for the Conference and the Gillings family. This year, we are offering the opportunity for Dr. Jenkins’ friends and supporters to give to the Minority Health Conference to honor his legacy and ensure his vision for the conference endures. These honorary gifts will be recognized in the Conference program.
