Med Melanin

Redefining healthcare for Women of Color.

Get Started with Our Symptom Questionnaire

Our personalized questionnaire helps you gather insights and prepare for a more productive consultation with your doctor. It's like having a health advocate in your pocket.

Connect with other women of color, share experiences, and get advice in a safe and empowering space.


You Deserve Better Healthcare.

For too many women of color, the healthcare system hasn't lived up to that promise. We face a higher risk of misdiagnosis, delayed diagnoses, and feeling unheard during consultations. This can lead to frustration, poorer health outcomes, and a lack of trust in the medical system.

MedMelanin was created to bridge this gap and empower WOC to take charge of their health.


We understand the unique challenges you face.

That's why we connect you with a network of culturally competent physicians who are trained to listen, understand your concerns, and provide care tailored to your specific needs.

"Constantly feeling dismissed"

Unfortunately, too many women of color struggle with feelings of dismissal from primary care physicians. As a result, women are 30 times more likely to be misdiagnosed or experience poor medical treatment. That is why our moral value is - Active Listening

"Do I really have to be an advocate"

​Black women are 3-4 times more likely to experience maternal morbidity. That is why it is more important than ever to be your own advocate, to listen to your body, and acquire the help needed to ensure you are safe. That is why our moral value is - Building Community

"I do not trust my doctor"

With statistics like the 2017 Pearson nursing textbook that taught racial stereotypes how is anyone meant to trust the medical system? WOC have every reason not to trust medical professionals but there should be a better way to navigate your healthcare journey. Our moral value is - Improving Trust
