    Ep 1 Dr. Russell Ledet - Before his success, we talk challenges, hard times, and rising above it all

    Ep 1 Dr. Russell Ledet - Before his success, we talk challenges, hard times, and rising above it all

    Dr. Russell Ledet has an incredible story of struggle and triumph. Before his PhD and Medical School, as a child, Dr. Ledet often wondered where his next meal would come from. Raised by a single mother who encouraged reading and learning, Dr. Ledet found a way out of poverty. After serving in the military, Dr. Ledet capitalized on education and set his eyes on a PhD from NYU and is currently a medical student at Tulane School of Medicine. After getting an opportunity to visit the Whitney Plantation in Wallace, Louisiana, Dr. Ledet realized the magnitude of how far his people have come. This inspired a return trip to the plantation with 14 other Doctors where a monumental photo was captured and an organization was born. Dr. Ledet is co-founder of The 15 White Coats, an organization who's mission is to "Re-imagine cultural imagery in learning spaces, lessen the financial burden of applying to medical school for applicants of color, and to influence cultural literacy in learning spaces".
