Why See My Skin?
Systemic racism and healthcare inequities negatively impact people of color, leading to worse outcomes including misdiagnoses, untreated conditions and increased mortality rates for skin cancer.
Even on the internet, to see images of conditions on melanin-rich skin, searches need to be qualified with “on Black/Brown skin”. In an effort to eliminate the long-standing bias and exclusion of people of color in skin health, this platform was created so that people with Black and Brown skin could see themselves. Here, melanin-rich skin is the default, not an afterthought. With See My Skin, you can search, learn, and find a provider who can offer you the superior care your skin deserves.
