Dr. Jacqueline Dow is a sought-after speaker, public health expert and entrepreneur.
Her career as a public health research scientist focuses on collecting data to find solutions to healthcare issues in the community. Her research has primarily focused on women and how to combat chronic diseases, ways to increase access to healthcare and reduce inequities in the minority community. She also frequently speaks about preconception health and wellness and the impact on pregnancy outcomes.
In 2018, she became an entrepreneur and bridged the gap between her passion for women’s health and flair for fashion by founding J. Dow Fitness, LLC. The Atlanta based, athleisure company features apparel that is size-inclusive and emphasizes the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle regardless of age or fitness level.
Her hard work and dedication led to an exclusive partnership with Target 2022 Black Beyond Measure Collection, J. Dow Fitness was featured in more than 1,200 Target stores across the country. Through this annual celebration of Black History Month, Target, amplified and celebrated the voices of the Black community of today by expanding their partnerships with Black-owned businesses. On the heels of the Target collaboration, the J. Dow Fitness Spring 2022 Collection was released exclusively on the J. Dow Fitness website.
Dr. Dow believes that as a female entrepreneur, it is important that women continue to break barriers, relentlessly pursue their wildest dreams and leave a clearer path for the next generation. She plans to continue development of exclusive athleisure apparel collections for mass retail while raising awareness to the importance of women’s health issues such as chronic disease prevention, mental health, and nutrition.
She is originally from Chicago, IL and earned a Bachelor of Applied Health Sciences from the University of Illinois, a Master of Science in Public from Meharry Medical College, an Executive Certificate in Health Policy from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and a Doctor of Public Health degree from Morgan State University.
