Extraordinary: Collage of Black Female Physicians Gives Thanks to Doc McStuffins Show for Positive Role Models

By  |  36 Comments

Thousands of black female physicians around the country have banded together to thank Disney and Brown Bag Films for the creation of the hit TV show, “Doc McStuffins.”  A collage of many of the women was included in the campaign.  Also, the blog Coilyembrace.com paid tribute to the campaign as well:

Since the Cosby show went off the air in 1992, we have not seen as many positive African American images on T.V. as we had hoped.  This was especially true for our small children.  Outside of Sesame Street, it seemed that children’s TV was still lacking the representation of diversity that made up the United States.  But that has all changed with one new children’s program.

We have written a couple of entries in our blog about why we love Disney’s Doc McStuffins.  We have discussed how we believe that this program featuring a little African American girl and her family is crucial to changing the future of this nation.

We also started a campaign to express our thanks to Disney and Brown Bag Films for creating, producing and airing Doc McStuffins.  What started out as a simple collage of a few African American women physicians expressing thanks to Disney and Brown Bag Films has now taken on a life of its own.  When we first started the collage we never thought we would get anywhere close to the current number of physicians who have agreed to lend their image to this project.  But here we stand today with what we believe may be one of the most moving visual images of African American women in some time.

Our latest version of the We Are Doc McStuffins collage is made up 131 African American women physicians from around the world.  They represent physicians from Neurosurgery, Pediatrics, Pediatric Anesthesiology, Ob/gyn, Cardiothoracic surgery, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Orthopedic Surgery, Occupational Medicine, Emergency medicine, Internal medicine, Family medicine, Dermatology, Cardiology (Electrophysiology), Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Neuro-otology , Otolaryngology (ENT), Sports Medicine , Urgent Care, Pediatric Hospitalist, Geriatrics , Medical Oncology, Infectious disease, Preventive Medicine, Allergy & Immunology, Naturopathic medicine, Pediatric Emergency medicine, Physical Medicine & Rehab (PM&R), Naturopathic endocrine/oncology, Urogynecology & Reconstructive Pelvic surgery, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Transplant surgery, Internal medicine hospitalist, General Surgery, Med/peds, Nephrology, Podiatry, Psychiatry and Public Health/Community medicine.

    This is wonderful. I agree that since Huxtables finished in 92 there hasn’t been a positive Afr Am on tv. I dont have kids so I dont watch Disney but I’d like to see this Dr Mcstuffins show.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    the same thing about the Uni Bomber.The unspoken comment underlying these other comments is: "Who knew?" That, they probably believe, absolves them from responsibility since they did know the threat and did nothing.(Sorry for the psycho ba#lre)You&b39;be insight is wonderful, though, and always on target. http://kllhfinvf.com [url=http://rwqhanx.com]rwqhanx[/url] [link=http://meopnqvx.com]meopnqvx[/link]
