Among her many titles, Dr. Abdul-Mutakabbir is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Pharmacy at UC San Diego’s Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences and in the Division of the Black Diaspora and African American Studies. Her research in mitigating antimicrobial resistance has led her to be recognized by the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases as one of their 30 under 30 outstanding young scientists, for their ECCMID 2021 31st annual meeting.  She is also dedicated to magnifying and rectifying health inequities in minoritized communities. To that point, she currently serves as the Lead Pharmacist and Educator for Congregations Organized for Prophetic Engagement-Health Equity Collaborative and was the 2023 recipient of the Infectious Disease Society of American Clinical Practice Innovation Award.

Dr. Abdul-Mutakabbir’s talk will provide an overview of health equity principles, inequities observed in AMR, and the link to vaccine inequities.She will explore a framework on how to incorporate equity into different facets of practice, both within and outside of the realm of infectious diseases practice.
