SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

This Picture Of A Black Foetus Went Viral

For years, medical books and images have only used images of white people in their illustrations and photos which, in some cases, have led to unnecessary loss of life.

Unfortunately, the medical field isn't trained to look for signs of serious health issues in dark skin, which are far easier to notice in those with lighter skin.

This image of a black foetus seeks to change that and to help people feel more included in medicine.
