Welcome to MyUzima

 

Uzima means full of life in Swahili. The children of the diaspora, Black Americans, through our journey as slaves, freedmen, and citizens, have always made the best of life. MyUzima seeks to integrate social, medical, and political conversations so that communities of color can be empowered to eliminate the social and political determinants of health that shorten our life span.
 
Founded by Dr Kendra Outler MD, MyUzima sits at the crossroads of education and advocacy, with the goal of both serving and empowering our community. We share the latest news on medical conditions that disproportionately affect Black and underserved communities, work toward eliminating disparities in healthcare, and partner with organizations and agencies in medical and related communities seeking to engage with our audience.

Here you will find articles, interviews, reviews, communities, and more.
