Ashlee Wisdom is a writer, healthcare professional and challenger of the status quo. She received her BS in Psychology with a minor in Biology from Howard University, and an MPH with a concentration in Healthcare Policy & Management from NYU.
Her vision for Health in Her HUE was born out of her frustrations observing how structural racism impacts healthcare and health outcomes. Understanding the impact systemic racism and sexism have on Black women’s health, she felt compelled to empower them as they engage with a healthcare system that often fails them.
Her profound concern for the health and well-being of Black women inspired her to create a space for Black women and by Black women, where they can be better informed and feel empowered when it comes to their health.
In creating this platform, she endeavors to develop and curate innovative solutions for health issues that disproportionately impact Black women. She is passionate about health equity and is adamant about challenging healthcare systems to find systemic ways to address the unique needs and concerns of Black women.
She enjoys traveling the world, writing, a good brunch, and hosting epic game nights for her friends. You can follow her on Twitter @AshleeWisdom for a healthy balance of humor and insightful commentary.
