Deloitte, a tax and advisory organization, is partnering with Johnson & Johnson on the launch of Illustrate Change, focusing on building momentum around representation in medical illustrations and reduce health disparities among people of color. Featuring the work of Nigerian medical illustrator Chidiebere Ibe, the project will include 25 diverse illustrations across dermatology, maternal health, eye disease, oncology, and more.

"The lack of representation in medical imagery is an issue that directly impacts communities of color and their relationship with the healthcare system. This can lead to feelings of not being seen, and continue potential mistrust among communities of color," said Vanessa Broadhurst, EVP, global corporate affairs, Johnson & Johnson. "The AMI Diversity Fellowship is a unique component of Johnson & Johnson's commitment to addressing racial biases in medicine, increasing representation in healthcare, and promoting health equity so that all communities can thrive."
