Real Talk BLM – Bridgette's Story: "Someone like you..."

When Dr. Bridgette Provost immigrated from Jamaica, she thought racism in the U.S. meant lynching and riots. But pursuing a career in medicine showed her that it’s often more subtle than that.

Dr. Provost is an internal medicine physician with Vituity, a physician partnership that places clinical expertise and patient outcomes at the center of their work.

The Vituity Cares Foundation was formed in 2020 in an effort to foster a new, more diverse generation of healthcare leaders, countering underrepresentation in the industry. Vituity Cares is dedicated to healing the most vulnerable, empowering the underrepresented, and ensuring a more equitable future for all. More information is available at
