We know lots of women suffer from heavy periods, but when your period affects your quality of life, one must ask questions. Tanika Gray and Mabel Bashorun join me on the podcast today to talk about the very real–almost epidemic levels–problem of uterine fibroids in black women.

Tanika Gray is the founder of the White Dress Project who’s mission is to galvanize support and promote national and international awareness about the fibroids epidemic among women domestically and globally through education, research and advocacy.
