Renée Boynton-Jarrett, MD, ScD
Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Boston Medical Center
Founding Director, Vital Village Network
Brief Summary of Lecture
Dr. Renée Boynton-Jarrett will discuss the role of using a trauma-informed framework to promote
systems alignment and innovative, cross-sector partnerships to improve wellbeing and achieve
equity. This presentation will review the contribution of early life adversities and adverse social
environments to inequities in health, with a focus on the role of social stress as a driver of
inequities. One learning objective is to review new medical competencies that consider structural
violence and social forces as a strategy to transform models of practice and care. An additional
objective of the presentation is to situate the current use of metrics of wellbeing and improve the
utility of metrics to track progress and implement local improvements over time by sharing
examples of how participatory strategies, community engagement, and community-based research
methods can be incorporated in the work of Vital Village Network. Finally, the presentation will
share strategies for scaling local innovations and the essential role of civic participation for building
community capacity to achieve health equity.
