Welcome to NOWINCLUDED:
The online community for conversations about black health.

Now.

It’s time we hear each others’ health stories and experiences. From unknown family medical histories, to navigating misdiagnoses, to searching for the right doctors and the right treatment: people in our community are no strangers to disparities in healthcare.

For generations, we’ve needed a place – a trusted place – to hear from each other, share with each other and learn from each other. This is that place.
