Jessica Makori, BA

My coursework and experiences in public health and women’s and gender studies inspired me to further act on my commitments to advancing anti-poverty and health equity work. In doing so, I am honored to join AICAF as part of the AmeriCorps Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) program. As the lead of survivorship programming, I assess and enhance AICAF’s capacity for sustainably supporting American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) cancer survivors and clinical systems using the wisdom and knowledge gained from Native survivors and the survivorship literature. I also combine efforts with the Cancer Equity team to promote community and clinical engagement in instituting innovative solutions for reducing the incidence and impact of cancer among AI/ANs.
