Jimmie Knight III, B.A.
Jimmie is our newest addition to the Metropolitan Breast Cancer Task Force. He serves as a Data Coordinator for the Chicago Breast Cancer Quality Consortium. His interest in health and education disparities began in high school as a mentor within the Minority Achievement Committee. The Committee was established to address the achievement gap between African American and white males. Furthermore, as an intern in the Breast and Cervical Cancer Division within the Michigan Department of Community Health, Jimmie analyzed various risk assessment tools to determine which tools most accurately evaluated risk factors for breast and/or cervical cancer in women. Jimmie's interests in healthcare led him to receive a bachelor degree in Biology at Kenyon College in 2011. He hopes to further his education in the future either in public health or medicine.
