When actress Tia Mowry started experiencing inflammatory pain, she sought out the guidance of her doctor. After being passed from doctor to doctor, she still had no answers. Eventually, she was diagnosed with endometriosis, a disorder in which tissue that normally lines the inside of your uterus grows outside the uterus, but getting the correct prognosis was exhausting.
As it turns out, the doctor who correctly diagnosed Mowry was a Black woman.
Inspired by her doctor’s support, Mowry was motivated to help other Black women—a group she believes has been largely left out of health conversations—receive similar guidance. “I wanted to inspire them to do the same thing; to take charge of their health and wellness.”
