JUST LISTEN TO US
"A voice for the voiceless."
Is an open network & discussion forum for African-American women to obtain healthcare-related support and resources to address the systemic effects of medical bias, healthcare discrimination, and dismissive treatment from healthcare providers.
“A well-educated African American woman with more than a high school education has a five-fold risk of death compared to a white woman with less than a high school education.”
JUST LISTEN TO US AT A GLANCE
We use data-driven solutions to conduct studies, develop reports, and hold open forums that help us understand how poor quality healthcare and medical bias personally impacts our demographic to help foster awareness about our medical issues and uncover areas to initiate change.
"Only 5.7 percent of all physicians practicing in the United States are African-American, out of a population that is over 13 percent black."
WHAT WE DO
Our primary focus is to improve healthcare outcomes for Black women by advancing healthcare equity and providing our members access to trusted medical resources. We also provide moral support and critical information to Black women who have experienced medical bias, are battling chronic health conditions, or have received poor quality healthcare from a medical provider during our open forums. The results of our studies are used to generate dialogue and obtain feedback during our open forum discussions.
