Minority Women in Medicine

Happy New Year!!!! One of my objectives when I first started this blog was to highlight minority women in medicine and their accomplishments. It can be somewhat discouraging to be interested in something, and not see that others like yourself have had much success in the same thing. I realize that in medicine and in any other field, we would not be able to have the accomplishments we have had without those who came first and blazed the trail for us. We stand tall because we stand on the backs of us that came before us, and it is important to always remember that. For this reason, I will be shining the spotlight on minority women in medicine on either a weekly or bi-weekly basis (I haven’t decided which yet). My focus will not solely be on African-American women, because there are many other underrepresented minorities that I feel need to be acknowledged as well. I will try to focus on women in osteopathic medicine, but I will not strictly limit myself to this either. Also, if there is any specific person you would like me to highlight please feel free to let me know and I will get right to it. Hopefully, this will give everyone a little bit more inspiration as you all work on achieving your goals.  


Below are links to the individual women who have been highlighted in my blog so far:

Aisha Bailey, DO

Angela Green, DO

Octavia Cannon, DO

Paula Anderson-Worts DO, MPH

Jennifer Caudle, DO

Barbara Ross-Lee, DO

  2. Hi, im a pre-med student right now. I'm really struggling with organic chemistry and I'm feeling really discouraged. I feel like I'm proving the idea that black women can't do science. I'm doing well in my other classes but I'm really struggling with this one. Do you have any advice for me?

    1. Keep pushing!!!! Organic chemistry was rough for me too! So rough that I ended up having to retake the course :-/ With that being said, there is a light at the end of the tunnel and a lot of people struggle with orgo, so just take it one day at a time and don't be afraid to get tutoring or visit the prof during office hours for more help.

  4. Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. Buy Kratom
