I still remember the first day of medical school orientation, almost twelve years ago. Henry Pohl MD, the dean of Albany Medical College, walked out to greet us wearing a rock band t-shirt and a condom hat.
His point? No matter what you do, you'll always be viewed as The Doctor.
I don't always see myself that way. I'm just the girl who goes running in the morning before work, wears blue jeans and a sweatshirt to the grocery store, and watches American Idol. I see myself as an ordinary person.
But, I am a physician, which gives me credibility on topics of diet and heart health. Through this blog, as The Doctor, I have power to help people change what they eat and how they treat their bodies.
Hence, the name change. Welcome to VeganHeartDoc.blogspot.com!
