Educate a Girl and Change the World
May 15, 2017
Today I talked with Dr. Myiesha Taylor and her daughter Haley Taylor Schlitz. Dr. Taylor is a board certified emergency medicine physician. She's the founder and President of the Artemis Medical Society, an organization of over 3,700 women of color physicians. Haley is a 14 year old college student majoring in Chemistry, with a goal of obtaining a medical degree like her mom.
In today's interview, we discussed why awareness is so important for women of color in medicine, Dr. Taylor shared advice on informing and educating our children, highlighting several big mistakes most parents make with our children's education. She also discussed the secret to the investment they made in Haley that propelled her to now succeed in college at 14 years old.
