Humble Beginnings Can Lead To The Brightest Futures!

     Greetings from  Dr. Chantale Stephens-Archer & Dr. Gameli Dekayie-Amenu, the Executive Directors of Medical Mavens.  We met over 15 years ago when we were just starting our undergraduate degrees at the University of Chicago. Being both first generation college  attendees with multicultural backgrounds and our sights set on medical school, our friendship naturally progressed through college, medical school and residency.  As practicing physicians, as well as best friends,  we have a passion for women’s health and have used that passion to develop BestiesMD™.  Driven by a desire to provide quality and relatable medical advice, we utilize social media as a platform for distribution of our information.  We have created and continue to generate a loud buzz on social media and have extended our reach to include community speaking engagements, YouTube webisodes, our Tea & Cookies podcast and guest contributions to magazines and blogs.  We pride ourselves on being the outspoken, down to earth, keeping it real doctors that you never had.  It was only a natural progression that our next step was the development of the Medical Mavens Pipeline Program.          

     Medical Mavens is truly our prized jewel.  The Medical Mavens Pipeline Program is a wonderful opportunity to nurture young women who share a burning desire to become doctors and for service within their communities.  The program, under the leadership of future doctor Jazzmyne Montgomery, utilizes workshops, seminars, hands on clinical experiences, medical resources and mentorship to develop and enhance the skill sets necessary to be a powerful physician.  The ultimate objective of Medical Mavens is to equip young women with the skill sets required to efficiently navigate their professional journeys while remaining engaged in their communities.  2017 marks the initiation of our first cohorts of aspiring young physicians through our pipeline program.  It’s guaranteed to be an eventful journey and the beginning of a lifelong career of learning.  The Medical Mavens Pipeline Program hopes to change the face of medicine. We are truly excited about what’s to come from this opportunity!
