    Today’s Guest

    Erkeda DeRouen, MD

    Erkeda DeRouen, M.D. is a double board-certified Family Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine physician. Mentoring is important to her, as I believe that one should always share their gifts to uplift others. Recently, she began to host a pre-med and medical student geared podcast called “The Prospective Doctor” to expand the amount of medical students mentor.

    She also is an energetic public speaker that spreads ideas about the state of healthcare, personal empowerment, and professional growth.
