They say Google can be your worst enemy when you think something may be wrong medically, but there’s nothing wrong with consulting us! Make that our resident medical doctor, Mercy Edionwe, MD.
Dr. Edionwe is a physician who specializes in internal medicine in the great state of Texas. She earned her medical degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch, and afterwards, completed an internal medicine residency at the University of Arizona in Tucson. During her free time, she loves to write and educate the public on medical issues, which is why she’s here on Madame Noire to answer all your burning health questions – you know those things you may be too embarrassed to ask your permanent physician in person or things Google can’t give you a definitive answer on.
As Black women, it’s important to get medical information from someone we can identify with, and Dr. Edionwe wants to talk openly about issues and diseases that we as a people need to discuss. That’s why she’ll be here on Madame Noire answering your questions each week.
