Meet Dr. DeShawn

Foremost Reproductive Justice Author and Advocate in Phoenix

Hello and welcome to Health Justice MD! I am a Black woman physician passionate about fighting for reproductive justice. My community-based work informs my expertise, and I am dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to the reproductive health services they need to make informed decisions about their bodies and their lives. Health Justice MD was founded at the intersection of my clinical work and social activism. Leveraging my 21 years of providing abortion care and working in socioeconomically depressed, medically underserved, and ethnically diverse communities fueled my social and reproductive justice activism. I bring my teaching and research skills, relational skills, knowledge, expertise, and leadership to help organizations through a paradigm shift to move beyond today's challenges. 

Located in Phoenix, I offer consultation, workshops, and speaking engagements to help organizations and individuals understand and work toward reproductive justice. Reproductive justice is about more than just legal access to abortion - it's about the right to have a child, not have a child, and parent the children we have in safe and healthy environments. It's about addressing the systemic inequalities that impact marginalized communities and creating a positive vision for the future. 

I am committed to providing personalized and community-based services to ensure that everyone has access to the support they need. Whether you're an organization looking to transform your approach to reproductive health and rights or you are a social justice organization ready get involved in the fight for reproductive justice, I am here to help. Thank you for visiting Health Justice MD. Contact me and let's work together to create a world where everyone has the right to make their own reproductive choices and live healthy and fulfilling lives.
