Evaleen Jones is a graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine and the University of California, San Francisco Family Practice Residency. She is an assistant professor at Stanford University School of Medicine. Jones is an active member of the Global Health Education Consortium, which is composed of faculty and educators dedicated to international health education. Her commitment to the underserved stems from growing up in rural New Jersey and spending her college years in the Appalachian region of the United States where poverty prevails.
Jones began her work in international health taking trips to Ecuador as a medical student. Within five years (in 1992), she founded Child Family Health International (CFHI) to support her on-going work to promote better global health conditions. Thirteen years later, CFHI has grown to work with 163 global partners, including non-governmental organizations, physicians, and academic institutions. It sends 600 medical students abroad each year, while supporting the partnerships with over $1 million in donations of medical supplies and grants for health projects. Jones works actively to support the organization's growth and development, traveling extensively to strengthen sustainable healthcare for underserved communities worldwide.
Jones specializes in family practice and has a large pediatric clientele. She has a particular interest in complementary, alternative, and energy medicine.
