Research shows that less than 5% of illustrations in medical textbooks are black illustrations and this has a great impact on our healthcare outcomes. This talk focuses on showing how ethnically-diverse representation can improve our health outcomes. Chidiebere has realised the little or no representation of black people in our medical literature and public health resources and this is why representation matters. If we are working to provide good healthcare delivery to the community, the approach has to be very representative, resulting in good Doctor-Patient communication, self-worth, and better medical practice.
