This episode features Dr. Michael Knight
, an Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine specialist. He shares his pathway to medicine which started at an HBCU (Oakwood University). Dr. Knight talks about how he became interested in obesity medicine and the niche of Patient Safety. Dr. Knight completed a fellowship at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Cinical Scholars Pr…
(which is now the National Clinician Scholars Program). This allowed Dr. Knight to add an additional aspect to his career and led to his initial role as a patient safety officer.
In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Knight gives back to his community. In residency, he started a non-profit organization "The Renewing Health Foundation
", which empowers communities to live their best lives. Throughout his medical career, Dr. Knight has been incredibly active in the Student National Medical Association
