Welcome welcome, Medicine Mavens! We’re so happy to have you back with us today. 

As physicians, we’re often used to limiting ourselves and the care we provide by focusing solely on direct patient care. But, as an entrepreneur, you want your healthcare practice reach to go beyond the status quo. You want to make a change. You want to reach underserved communities in a way traditional hospital care has been known to.

Hey Medicine Maven! I'm so glad you were here today! 

Part of the difficulty in understanding how to get funding is the work it takes learning what kind of funding is available out there. It’s taken me YEARS to complete a lot of research, knowledge, conversations, interviews, and applications to get a comprehensive understanding of funding. And, as a busy physician, mom, wife, and likely so much more I know you just don’t have ...

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. 

If you’re feeling stuck in your life, career or business, and unsure ho...

Sometimes it's difficult to shift and approach what we have to leave behind to get to our next level. It's important that you are making sure that you're advocating for where you're supposed to be, whether that be in your current workplace or moving out of that workplace to another or your own healthcare entity and business. There's power in movement, but there's also power in staying where you are and...

We find ourselves “doing” so often that we don’t take the time to reflect on how far we’ve come. That’s why this episode of the Melanin & Medicine Podcast is about reflecting to stay motivated! 

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 m...

Life has a way of presenting challenges from all angles, but it’s important not to allow those barriers to redefine the way you view your ability to change what you CAN change. Don’t settle into a rut - continue to look for a way out and find a solution. Your best life still exists. Trusting your vision is paramount to knowing that you can redesign your normal.

So I have to ask: Where are you at this point? Do you have all of these ...

As Black women in healthcare, it’s extremely important for us to be observant about where justice is, who is not at the table and what's not being talked about. In this space, that can be very hard to do. And, it’s particularly important to remember that —  doing the type of work we do —  healthcare workers go through a lot and have a high rate of burnout and mental illness.

As health justice centered people in particular, much of the work that we do is quite comfortable. And, it's sometimes difficult to have a clear vision in general for our lives and careers in order to determine what is worth staying for or keeping in our lives opposed to what we should to eliminate, leave and let go to gain personal clarity, career success, and economic independence. We forget to stop and reflect, which keeps ...
