Episode 98: Nkem Osian on Uterine Fibroids, IPV, and HIV/AIDS Advocacy


Nkem Osian is a Public Health Analyst at the United States Department of Health and Human Services, where she analyzes and monitors Ryan White HIV/AIDS Programs in Los Angeles County. In this role, she ensures the uninsured, underinsured, and vulnerable individuals with HIV have access to optimal, life-saving treatment and care. In addition, Nkem is a patient advocate and member of the board of The White Dress Project (WDP), an organization focused on raising national awareness about the uterine fibroid epidemic and in filling the gaps in care, education, and research in the field. She herself lives with uterine fibroids, and shares her story to help break down the walls of silence that surround this common — and commonly unknown — gynecological condition.
