minute read

 Dr. Jennifer Taylor-Cousar, a pediatric and adult pulmonologist at National Jewish Health, is committed to creating systemic racial change for patients in the medical field. 

For the last two years, Taylor-Cousar has been the interim associate vice president of diversity, equity, and inclusion at National Jewish Health and is also part of the racial justice working group for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF). 

She shared that one of her medical goals is to, “improve the lives of every single person who has a chronic respiratory disease,” with a solid specific emphasis on cystic fibrosis. 

Through CFF, she said she had helped Black patients with cystic fibrosis advocate for themselves and help them identify their symptoms so they can express their pain to their doctor.
