Keila Brown-Jones always knew she wanted to enter the medical field. After earning her bachelor’s degree in biology from Tougaloo, she began teaching elementary-school math while working toward her master’s degree in health services administration through Mississippi College. After two years of teaching, Brown-Jones decided to pursue nursing.

Brown-Jones works at the Jackson-Hinds Comprehensive Health Center, one of the largest community health centers in the state. The center provides health care to the uninsured, insured, underinsured and everything in between. With the center, she leads its chronic care management program.

“Mississippi ranks at the top for chronic diseases. I want to work with other professionals to help decrease that and improve the quality of life,” she says. “Being in the South, there’s a stigma of us being unhealthy, and I want to work to remove that. (But) it takes all of us working together and making big changes to do that.” —Sarah Kate Pollard, Nate Schumann
