MelaninDoc, an Instagram page dedicated to black doctors, nurses, and medical students, is making a powerful statement of empowerment through their photos. The page already has over 26,000 followers.

With photos of various black medical professionals as well as some inspirational quotes along the way, the page’s goal is shed some light on black excellence.

Dr. Kelechi Okoroha is an example of one of these professionals. Graduating from Henry Ford Medical School in 2013, the orthopedic surgeon serves as an inspiration to people all over the world.

He says, “never let someone tell you it can’t be done. If you have a passion for something make it your goal and do everything you can to accomplish it. Always shoot for the stars that way if you fall you will still be in the clouds.”

The article outlined the issue of non-traumatic foot amputations occurring among Diabetics particularly the African American population. Then it went on to review the importance of Podiatric Medicine and its role in prevention. I applied to a Podiatric program, got in, and the rest is history. I have spent my career educating not only the African American community on foot health but anyone who was willing to listen. #MoorMelain Make sure to check out Dr. Smith’s books “Feet Naturally & Feet Naturally Diabetes “ #MelaninDocs, if you have a great story, why not share your story!

In order to do well in school you must constantly remind yourself that you are capable, you are able and you are blessed to be in the position to learn and train in your perspective field. Having faith in something beyond yourself is a major help because there are times that you may be left feeling not so great as you pursue greatness. Looking beyond yourself will always help reinforce your purpose and inspire you through the difficult times. #MoorMelanin Pamela is a contributor to the thenextdds.com Make sure to check it out!
