Dr. Karriem Watson’s New Role with All of Us

Congratulations to our friend and scholar Karriem Watson, DHSc, MS, MPH, on his recent appointment as the new Chief Engagement Officer of the NIH All of Us Research Program!

Dr. Watson has been a great friend to Madison, serving at the UW Health Equity Leadership Institute and multiple AoU WI events.  Over the last year, with the support of local leaders Ms. Lisa Peyton Caire (Foundation for Black Women’s Wellness) and Ms. Annie Weatherby-Flowers (Kujichagulia Center for Self Determination), he lent to community conversations about African Americans and research participation.

Dr. Watson you are so well-prepared to lend to this important national program and UW can’t wait to hear how we can support your priorities!!
