Illustration of a black man being misdiagnosed by a doctor due to white bias by Ellie Wilkinson
Self-initiated editorial illustration about racial bias in medicine. Medical literature and research is biased towards white people, leading to misdiagnosis of disease and worse outcomes for black patients. A commonly used example is that of skin; where some illnesses may appear as red rashes on white skin, black skin will have a different rash appearance.
