Creating the First Comprehensive Program to Address Transplant Disparities for African Americans- the Northwestern Medicine African American Transplant Access Program

She is also the founding Director of the Northwestern Medicine African American Transplant Access Program, an initiative of the Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Transplant Center. Under Dr. Simpson’s leadership, the program has committed to a campaign to eliminate transplant disparities for underserved residents of the greater Chicagoland area in relation to transplant care for kidney and liver disease. Through the development of a deeper understanding of the historical barriers and cultural concerns of the African American community, the program aims to overcome these obstacles through community partnership and community based participatory research.
