As we approach the next change of season, it’s time to start thinking about what we — as Black women healthcare professionals at the forefront of making changes in health equity — have done, have yet to do, what seeds we will be planting, and what we’re not feeling quite ready or able yet to grow to fruition out of unpreparedness, fear, reticence, or hesitancy. 

In this episode of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of normalizing , recognizing, and acknowledging the importance of the stages we take on the road to birthing our best.

What You’ll Learn From This Episode:

  • Why it’s okay to be in the space before your best work actually gets born
  • Why you don’t have to be 100% optimistic about the journey and to your best work and being ok with the journey that is part of getting there
  • Understanding you can’t do it all and being at the forefront of change in healthcare is less about doing everything on your own, but derived from funding, resources and networks
  • Remembering to learn from your past in order to create and birth the work that will change your future
  • How to apply three important questions for reflection and gauging your success

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on empowering Black women in medicine and academia to find their purpose and achieve their vision.
