Diet Doctor Podcast #53 — Tony Hampton, MD

Black Americans are disproportionately affected by diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic metabolic diseases. Dr. Tony Hampton has made it his mission to change that.

With his comprehensive lifestyle approach, he is making a profound impact in the underserved community where he works. Not only does he educate others, but he leads by example as well.

We all could use a caring and talented doctor like Dr. Hampton. With his voice and his advocacy, we hope to see his sweeping impact on the lives of the patients in his care who struggle with chronic diseases.

Thanks for reading,
Bret Scher, MD FACC
