John Dillon Harris

John Dillon is a native Mississippian and currently works as a public policy researcher and consultant in Jackson, Mississippi. He studied English and psychology at the University of Mississippi and received a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Southern Mississippi. While specializing in health care policy, the goal of John’s work is to address social inequities through a “health in all policies” approach and to help uplift communities with programs and policies that address health disparities and systemic inequalities through social, environmental, and health justice. Despite the state’s storied past, he strongly believes that communities across Mississippi have so much to offer to the rest of the world, and he is excited for this opportunity to work with other Jacksonians and people from across the country to tap into that potential.
