It is our ethical and moral obligation as clinicians to provide equity to all patients and reduce healthcare disparities. However, People with darker skin face worse health outcomes than their peers with lighter skin. Textbooks, dermatology atlases, and other resources typically underrepresent presentations of disease in people of color, affecting diagnostic accuracy.
VisualDx has been committed to providing a comprehensive resource for medical images across all skin types for more than 20 years. By ensuring that clinicians and students have access to a diverse set of clinical images we can begin to improve healthcare outcomes—particularly for patients of color.
