Jehan Adamji is a Family Nurse Practitioner who has spent her career serving vulnerable populations in community health settings.
After working as a public health nurse in Rush’s School Based Health Centers while completing her FNP degree, she was a clinician and co-site leader at our HHC-Wilson clinic from 2012-2014. During this experience she realized not only her passion in caring for refugees and recently resettled immigrant groups, but the complexities and challenges in doing so within the standard westernized health care system. She helped lay the groundwork for engagement in refugee-specific initiatives and our partnership with Rush University’s School of Nursing.
Jehan returns to Heartland Health Centers as Clinical Director of Refugee and Immigrant Health after seven years providing initial domestic health screenings and primary care to humanitarian immigrants at a Baltimore-based FQHC. She obtained her Executive Doctorate in Nursing and Nurse Educator Certificate from Johns Hopkins University while there and continues to be committed to mentorship for and recruitment of nurses to community- based settings. Jehan plans to apply her expertise in refugee care, population health, community partnerships, and the development of innovative, interdisciplinary evidence-based programs to improve health outcomes among Heartland Health Centers’ refugee and immigrant patients.
