Dr. Kimbra Bell
Expert on pandemic health disparities and the impact on frontline workers
Clinical assistant professor of general internal medicine and geriatrics at Feinberg and a Northwestern Medicine physician
Bell is a clinical assistant professor of general internal medicine and geriatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a Northwestern Medicine physician. As a physician who sees patients daily and answers questions and concerns about the virus, testing, when and how to visit family members and the secondary stress and anxiety related to remote learning and work, she can help reporters better understand what it is like to be on the frontlines of this pandemic. As an African-American, Bell is uniquely qualified to speak about the disproportionate effect the virus is having on the African-American population.
