Purpose to Profit Series

Black women go through so many trials and tribulations and in turn, make themselves smaller in order to hide from a society that continues to devalue us. That’s why episode 2 of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast Success Series is about navigating racism as black women physicians! 

Take our FREE QUIZ, “Are you owning your power or limiting it?“. As Black women, we often limit our dreams, our impact, our wealth & even our legacy by not owning our power & maximizing it. Knowing whether you are fully owning your power is essential for helping you learn how you can tap into more power to live the life you deserve. You’ll also get key info for discerning your purpose, prioritizing your goals and designing a sustainable plan to make it all happen.

In this episode of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of recognizing racism to change the way we face it and creating spaces and community and empowerment for black women.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • My personal journey to creating Melanin & Medicine as a response to addressing the implicit and explicit racism that black women physicians endure in the healthcare system.
  • How stress can have physical implications on our bodies, more than mental strain and burnout. 
  • Engineering smallness in order to not be seen and to fly under the radar through life. 
  • The insufficiency of one on one coaching and why being part of a community is valuable.
  • Teaching children at an early age that racism is just a blimp in the amazing, powerful, and resilient black history.
