She is also the founding Director of the Northwestern Medicine African American Transplant Access Program, an initiative of the Northwestern Medicine Comprehensive Transplant Center. Under Dr. Simpson’s leadership, the program has committed to a campaign to eliminate transplant disparities for underserved residents of the greater Chicagoland area in relation to transplant care for kidney and liver disease.
