WeCareJax Board Vice President: Dr. Ted Conklin

Dr. Ted Conklin is the retired Vice President and Chief Medical Officer of Commercial Business at Guidewell/Florida Blue.

In an interview with Florida Blue about whole-person care and focusing on the overall well-being of a person, Dr. Conklin stated, “Addressing social determinants of health, like housing and nutrition, is also part of whole-person care. COVID-19 created new disparities and highlighted other issues like health inequities, and [communities need] to get better at this.”

Dr. Conklin has been an integral part of our WeCareJax board since 2020 and we are grateful for his continued service to health equity in Duval County!
