Be Well Sis: The Podcast

May 23, 2023

Nearly a quarter of Black women between 18 and 30 have fibroids compared to about 6% of white women, according to some national estimates. By age 35, that number increases to 60%. Black women are also two to three times more likely to have recurring fibroids or suffer from complications.

Today's guest is Dr. Candice Nicole. She is an award-winning associate professor of counseling psychology at the University of Kentucky, where she studies sexual wellness and liberation. She also hosts F*ck the System: A Sexual Liberation Podcast, as well as How to Love a Human, a liberation podcast that asks people with multiple marginalized identities what the world would be like if it loved them. She's published over 50 research articles, been featured in HuffPost, Women's Health, Cosmopolitan, and the New York Times .
