Reinventing Government Administration

Dr. Marvia Jones has been working in the field of Public Health for 15 years with a special interest in violence prevention and health policy, both of which were honed during her time at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. While at the CDC, she evaluated the effectiveness of prevention tools provided to state and local health departments. In the Policy Office, she developed recommendations for public health best practices, such as the credentialing of community health workers.

Before joining KCHD in 2019, Dr. Jones directed programs, policy development, and evaluation at Communities Creating Opportunities.

After two years of focusing on the COVID-19 pandemic, Kansas City’s newly appointed health department director, Marvia Jones, wants the agency to focus on violence prevention as a key agency goal. Before joining the health department, Jones worked in public health and focused on that issue. She also spent time at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Overall, the Kansas City Health Department employs approximately 200 employees dedicated to public health efforts for our city.
