Dr. Jackson is a strong advocate for health equity, believing everyone should be able to achieve great health, no matter what they look like, how much money they make, or where they come from. A musician, a physician, a mother, a volunteer and a leader are just a few words to describe Dr. Jackson. Her work runs the gamut from developing health equity plans for underserved communities to building solutions to address substance abuse and support behavioral health and maternity care.

Dr. Jackson completed her residency in Family Medicine at Carolinas Medical Center, where she received the Bryant L. Galusha Intern of the Year Award and served as Co-Chief Resident. Since completing medical school, she has held leadership roles including Medical Director of a rural health clinic and Chair of the Department of Family Medicine. She was named the first Chief Community Impact Officer at Atrium Health where she established their Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health strategy.

Dr. Jackson joined CommonSpirit Health in June, 2020 as its first System Vice President of Population Health Innovation and Policy, with responsibilities for strategy development for vulnerable populations, health equity and innovative care delivery models.
