Kendra Jason

Dr. Kendra Jason is an Assistant Professor Sociology at UNC Charlotte. She is an interdisciplinary health disparities scholar who examines individual level factors, contextual level factors, and life events that may impact the relationship between poor health (i.e., chronic conditions) and desired workforce participation for older African American workers. Her program of research seeks to contribute to our understanding of the adverse effects of perceived lifetime discrimination on African Americans’ health status and ability to work. Previously, Dr. Jason worked at the UNC Chapel Hill Institute on Aging where her research focused on workforce development for frontline healthcare workers by analyzing factors affecting quality of care, patient satisfaction, better patient outcomes through skill development. She also examined supervisors’ influence on the mobility prospects of frontline workers.
