50 In 50: Black Dermatologists Across The United States

Skin is the largest organ we have, so it’s essential to take care of it to prevent premature aging, rashes, and cancer. Going to the dermatologist at least once a year is recommended to maintain the optimum health of your skin, especially since darker skin tones can suffer from skin ailments presented differently than caucasian skin. 

Surprisingly, there is only about three percent of black dermatologists even though African-Americans are 13.4% of the population in the U.S.

According to Data USA, there are only six percent of black physicians in the medical profession. This makes it extremely hard to find a black doctor and even harder to find a black dermatologist. 

Many dermatologists aren’t properly trained on darker skin tones and so they aren’t able to properly diagnose and treat certain ailments. For example, “where the five-year survival rate for a Black patient diagnosed with melanoma, a common form of skin cancer, is only 65% versus 90% for white patients,” according to Refinery29

You see, finding a black dermatologist isn’t just great for glowing skin, but it’s essential for diagnosing commonly missed skin diseases.

While there isn’t a black dermatologist in every state, here are 50 all across the U.S.
