A few weeks ago we brought you the story of Echogram, a collaboration between a trio of Canadian medical students to create digital portraits of health care workers, with all proceeds donated to the Frontline Fund. Now Echogram has teamed up with the University of Toronto’s Black Medical Students Association for a series of portraits featuring Black health care workers and medical students. The goal is to uplift readers and viewers by celebrating the achievements of the portrait subjects.

So far, the series has featured Dr. Bolu Oguyemi, a dermatologist from Newfoundland; brothers and soon-to-be doctors Victor and Emmanuel Igbokwe from the University of Toronto, and incoming med student Mohamed Adam, with more to come. You can stay up-to-date with all of Echogram’s stories and portraits by following them on Instagram.
