This week I was a Guest Lecturer for the medical students at Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine in New Mexico, USA.
In this lecture, I share on the visual presentation of Stevens-Johnson (SJS) in people of colour – using myself as a Case Study. In addition, I share my disheartening experience of systemic racism in health care due to the lack of representation of Black and Ethnic groups in medical education curricular. The session ended with a brilliant question, answer and comment session.
Over 91 students attended the lecture before their lab session along with their Professors and Instructors. Their response was incredibly encouraging and I am incredibly honoured to be part of a movement which champions inclusive medical care.
I am reminded that there is nothing that happens in our life that is ever wasted. Though my season of illness was painful, I continue to see the fruit of my suffering, from my well-received devotional (Beauty in The Beast: How To Suffer Well) to delivering lectures across the globe, as part of culturally competent medical education.
