Dr. Kemia Sarraf has long been an advocate for healthy communities both privately and professionally. She received her Medical Degree and Master of Public Health at the university of Utah School of Medicine, and completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine. More than a decade ago she launched genHkids, a successful non-profit public health initiative in Central Illinois. As the founder and president of genHkids, Dr. Sarraf designed numerous evidence-based programs, teaching thousands of children and their grownups to “Eat Real. Move More.” in their schools, communities and homes. Today she continues this work by providing valuable counsel to Urban Action Network’s programs and mentorship of other activists.
