    Morehouse Men - The Oracle - Branden Adams

    Morehouse Men - The Oracle - Branden Adams

    Branden has always had an old soul. Not like your granddad, but more like that wise uncle who always had a cigar or pipe in his hand, spitting knowledge to the young children in the room. In this interview Branden “LA” doesn’t disappoint. Reflecting on his grandmother’s push for education, his mom’s focus on hard work and his own personal desire for growth all that culminated with him attending Morehouse and tackling the world thereafter. Branden is truly “The Oracle!”

Melanted in Medicine Made Me a Connoisseur!

After listening to the Melanated in Medicine episode, I subscribed immediately! Dr. Pope came across so warm and relatable. I’m glad to know we have someone like her fighting for inclusion on the corporate side of medicine and willing to educate those of us who don’t really have inside knowledge on how clinical trials really work. French did a great interview also! Great job!!
