Dr. Myiesha Taylor is currently an ER specialist at TX Regional Medical Center and a physician supervisor at a manufacturing plant.  She was inspired to become a doctor, at a very young age, as her mother and grandmother were nurses.  Seeing the limited amount of black female physicians, Dr. Taylor created the Artemis Medical Society, a place where female physicians of color all around the world could find support in their professional endeavors. 

Hear Dr. Taylor speak to the importance of instilling self-love and self-esteem in children at home!  And, how her desire to introduce the medical profession to her four year old daughter.

Dr. Taylor has recently gained worldwide attention.  Impressed by the Disney Channel’s cartoon Doc McStuffins, which features an African-American girl as the lead character, Dr. Taylor wanted to share her profession with her daughter.  So, she created an online collage of African-American doctors who are real-life Doc McStuffins and sent it to Disney.
