There aren’t many medical practitioners who are using the power of social media as a tool, not for fame but for the well-being of individuals worldwide. Dr. Rena Malik is an awe-inspiring example of those few who are on the mission of making medical information more accessible to the public.
A trip to the doctor’s office can often end up with more questions than what you went in with; why is that so? Because some doctors choose not to spend their time helping patients understand their health concerns in layman’s terms. This is where Dr. Rena Malik’s expertise comes into play. Through creating videos on youtube, Dr. Malik has successfully helped millions around the world with undiagnosed urological issues. Her videos are accessible to everyone and consider the problems of young and old alike.
Be it information regarding pelvic organ prolapse or neurogenic bladder disorders, Dr. Malik is coming to the rescue of all who wish to learn more about their conditions and how they can suppress their symptoms. Her unfiltered information on every urological disease is a breath of fresh air for patients who have been tired of receiving incomplete information.
Dr. Rena Malik’s work has been featured on some of the world’s most renowned media forums, including Men’s Health, Yahoo Health, and The Huffington Post. In addition, Dr. Malik continues to inform the public of health issues through her appearance on numerous podcasts and media interviews.
Being a member of the American Urological Association and Society of Women in Urology, Dr. Rena Malik has also been tackling the underrepresentation of female doctors in the field. She is an inspiration to all female doctors looking to specialize in urology but backed off because the system continues to outvote them. She serves as a reminder to those struggling to turn their dreams into reality.
Dr. Rena Malik is winning her fight against the biases in the healthcare system. She is empowering female doctors, and her patients to talk about their urological and sexual issues, to have an opinion, and make sure they are being heard. Rena knows that the journey to entirely destigmatizing sexual problems is long and rocky but not impossible. By calling out people on the spread of medical disinformation, she is helping out those whose primary inlet for information is social media.
