We have to keep going!
We have to keep pushing for change to be implemented. Medical education should teach us normality and presentation in all patients. We need more representation in many aspects of our teaching - dermatology, vascular disease, cardiology, haematology are just few areas in a long list.
Did you know neutropenia (low neutrophil count) can be a benign finding in patients of African and Middle Eastern descent?
Did you know T wave inversion on an ECG can be a normal variant in patients of African descent?
Distinctions such as these are vital but often not mentioned in medical teaching. There are many other examples. Thank you for all your support!
