The core of Dr. Jehni Robinson’s career has been her commitment to improving access to quality health care to all people, particularly to those most in need. She spent 11 years at the Los Angeles Free Clinic, now known as the Saban Community Clinic, where she rose to chief medical officer. Dr. Robinson developed new systems at the clinic to improve the quality of care for the clinic’s low-income adults and children. For example, she created a new system to ensure female patients received regular breast cancer screenings and follow-ups. She also developed a system that improved the childhood immunization rates among the clinic’s patients.
Dr. Robinson has also been a leader at USC in terms of helping the institution adjust to new protocols and practices during the COVID-19 crisis and has since established a dedicated clinic for people who suffer from persistent COVID symptoms.
