Today we’re talking with Christine Lam. Christine is your classic high school nerd turned physician, after taking a detour exploring the world of education, teaching math in the New York City public school system.  After having her idealism (but not soul) crushed by young mischievous teenagers, she turned to the world of medicine to indulge her thirst for learning. She holds a BS from Cornell University in Human Biology, and a joint MD/MBA from Tufts University.  She is a co-host of the newly released DearDoc podcast, where she and her co-host Gregory Conor speak honestly and dig deep into the issues we all face as working parents. She’s a native from the east coast, but she has quickly assimilated to the sun and sand of the Greater Los Angeles area, enjoying the food, outdoors and outlets to all things international that the west has to offer.
