FACES OF MEDICINE is a documentary project celebrating the paths of Black female physicians both throughout the United States and in Massachusetts specifically.

In sharing these diverse experiences, the filmmakers' hope is that any young Black or brown woman can find herself in one of the stories, and feel empowered to pursue medicine if it is her passion.

Everyone who watches will leave with a better understanding of what their next doctor may have experienced along their journey.

This program is made possible by a grant from Mass Humanities.
