Since our inception, Melanin & Medicine has shifted from helping Black women physicians thrive inside of existing healthcare structures to making a decision to help them create new ways of being, new ways of transforming healthcare that don’t need to fit into what has traditionally been presented to them. That’s why episode 117 of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast is about empowering underrepresented women in medicine to transform healthcare!
