A news article featuring a Q&A with the author Malone Mukwende about the development of his recent handbook "Mind the Gap". A much needed handbook for trainee doctors that provides examples of various illnesses and diseases and how these can present on different skin tones.
A Black medical student has created a handbook to help trainee doctors recognise conditions on darker skin.
Malone Mukwende, a second year student at St George's, University of London, had the idea after only being taught about clinical signs and symptoms on White skin.
The handbook is called Mind the Gap. It contains side-by-side images demonstrating how illnesses and diseases can present in light and dark skin.
