Kwame Terra

2021/2022 Kirchner Food Fellow
HBCU Fellows

Kwame is currently pursuing a Master of Public Health degree in Health Equity at Xavier University in New Orleans, Louisiana. His studies focus on the association between local food environment and chronic disease prevalence.

Kwame recently founded bEHR Health Systems, a medical and lifestyle management platform aimed at improving health outcomes for African Americans. He believes that bEHR can help address the growing health disparities by increasing access to racially equitable healthcare and improving health literacy in the black community.

After completing his MPH, Kwame plans to work with entrepreneurs, investors, and policymakers, to address global food, housing, and healthcare insecurity.
