Welcome to Season 2 of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast!

There are so many times when we feel like we’re being blocked from reaching our goals by our own anxiety or hesitancy. This is a pretty common feeling among BIWOC women in healthcare – especially those in positions of creating opportunities for the underserved in the space of health justice. The reality is that we’re not stuck. We’re simply not regularly tapping into the key behaviors that help to keep us moving. It’s just a matter of knowing  the decision to do so, breaking it up into manageable chunks, and taking those actions.

Don’t forget, you can complete our Discovery Form so we can learn how the Melanin & Medicine team can support you to plan, build, fund, or grow your healthcare practice or consulting firm to serve diverse, underserved communities.

On our first episode of this new season, we’re discussing the strategies that will help get you unstuck whenever you encounter a roadblock in your healthy equity work.


  • How to stay the course and remain grounded in your social impact entrepreneurship journey
  • How  to tap into the WHY of your enterprise in order to feel truly connected to your vision
  • How to find motivation WHEN you feel overwhelmed in your health justice work
  • The importance of determining WHO and WHAT you need in order to help you move past your blocks and build your vision …and much more!
