Welcome to the Melanin & Medicine podcast, where we help Black women in medicine to successfully create, build and grow their own mission-driven companies that change the world. I’m your host, Dr. Omolara Thomas Uwemedimo, pediatrician, wife, mom of 2, former professor, proud introvert with a mild Twitter addiction. After losing the ability to walk and being diagnosed with an autoimmune brain disorder in 2019, I decided to finally stop normalizing a life of struggle and self-sacrifice and start living in my purpose. In less than 2 years, I’ve founded and grown two social impact businesses to the multi-six figure mark. On this podcast, my guests and I will share our uniques stories and lessons learned as we continue to scale companies to create LIFE- Legacy, Impact, Freedom and Ease.
