Vice president for social determinants of health,
Hackensack Meridian Health
Harris-Hollingsworth has led the effort to address social determinants of health via a platform called NowPow (acquired by Unite Us in 2021), which connects Hackensack Meridian patients to resources to address the social determinants of health. Under her leadership, the health system tapped predictive analytics to prioritize food security, housing stability, transportation, caregiver support and treatment for mental health and substance use disorders. A team of community health workers helps bridge the gap between patients’ clinical and social needs. Previously, Harris-Hollingsworth served as director of community collaborations and engagement at Albert Einstein School of Medicine, and assistant vice president of community and population health at Montefiore Medical Center.
