A Message from the CEO
The cost of racial health disparities cost our country $1.3 trillion dollars between 2003-2006 alone. Konquered Healthcare Solutions, LLC was established to expressly provide solutions for the gaping health and healthcare divide faced by the African-American community. We began by providing consulting for diabetes-self management programs, equity-focused methods, and culturally competent curriculum development. We have expanded to national health awareness campaign activations, national data collection, and governmental relations consulting.
I implore you to join us in the greatest part of our journey.
as principal investigator, Dr. Kevin Ahmaad Jenkins and his research lab led nearly 200 conversations about the role of race, discrimination, and stress in managing chronic disease with patients, providers, and policymakers.
Make it stand out.
Konquered’s research findings detailed how stress rapidly wear the body down and makes disadvantaged groups sicker.
The Interpreting Attitudes towards Minorities in Medicine (I AM) Research Group also found that present and historic experiences with racism contribute to disparate health and healthcare decisions even with high levels of trust among their providers.
