Wilkins holds appointments as associate professor of Medicine at both Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Meharry Medical College and is co-director of the Community-Engaged Research Core of the Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical and Translational Research.

Wilkins was recruited to lead the Alliance in 2012 and has focused on expanding its community-engaged research initiatives while continuing to cultivate its existing programs.

Wilkins joins Beth Malow, M.D., M.S., Burry Professor of Cognitive Childhood Development and professor of Neurology and Pediatrics, in representing Vanderbilt University Medical Center in the 2014-2015 ELAM program.

The ELAM program is the only in-depth national program dedicated to preparing women faculty at schools of medicine, dentistry and public health to effect sustained positive change as institutional leaders.

The intensive one-year program supports ELAM fellows as they develop a broader vision of their role within their academic health centers, enhancing their leadership effectiveness, understanding of strategic finance, and ability to lead organizational change. Fellows also become part of an active resource network of women leaders.
