Dr. Collins is the inaugural Vice Dean for Inclusion and Diversity and Chief Diversity Officer in the Joe R. and Teresa Lozano Long School of Medicine and Associate Professor in the Department of Population and Health Sciences. She is recognized at both state and national levels for her work in health disparities, primarily as it relates to the social context and various societal influences that contribute to health differences (e.g., childhood obesity) among racial/ethnic and across socioeconomic groups. In 2016, she received the distinction of having one of the top-100 cited papers on health care disparities research published over a period of three decades. Collins received her doctorate from the University of Michigan and has been the recipient of numerous prestigious awards. She is a former Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Scholar and Andrew W. Mellon/Woodrow Wilson Fellow, two prestigious national programs supporting early-career scholars. In April 2019, she was selected to join the prestigious 25th anniversary Class of the Hedwig van Ameringen Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) Program, a highly competitive program for women faculty in schools of medicine, dentistry, public health and pharmacy interested in senior administration. Additional leadership accomplishments include the Johns Hopkins University Leadership Program (2014) and the AAMC Healthcare Executive Diversity and Inclusion Certificate Program (2017-18). Collins is actively engaged at the national and regional levels in numerous capacities related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. She is the designated institutional officer for the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) Group on Diversity and Inclusion (GDI), AAMC Gender Equity Lab Institutional Liaison, and former Member-at-Large on the AAMC Group on Women in Medicine and Science (GWIMS) Steering Committee. In fall 2019, she became the GDI chair-elect and will establish her duties as chair in 2021; she also serves on a variety of AAMC task forces and committees. A longtime advocate for gender equity and recognizing the critical importance of intersectionality, primarily as it pertains to women of color, Collins is one of the founding TIMES-UP Healthcare national advisory board members. Her Twitter account was recently recognized by ELAM as one of the most popular accounts to follow.
