On this episode, I am excited to introduce you to Lekeshia Jarrett, M.D. She is an amazing person and we focus on her background and evolution as both a mother and family medicine physician.

She is the cornerstone of a power couple with her husband Christopher Jarrett. Chris has a cameo but really deserves an episode of his own.

Here is a link to the book she recommended Heavy by Kiese Laymon.
