    Creating Personal, Community and Worldwide Impact Through Philanthropy With Dr. Recha Bergstrom

    Today's episode is such a befitting episode for the holiday season. It's about philanthropy. I know you could be thinking that philanthropy is only for the super-rich, but hold that thought! Dr. Recha Bergstrom, a radiologist based out of Northern California thinks otherwise.

Being on the receiving end of other people's charity opened her eyes to the endless possibilities. 


    Dr. Bergstrom is now the founder of The Physician Philanthropist, where she helps physicians learn how to maximize their philanthropic impact intelligently to achieve the greatest personal, community, and worldwide benefit.
