Lunch and Learn with Dr. Berry: How I Used Sports Medicine to Change the Life of Many

Let's talk about Sports Medicine…

In this new podcast episode of Lunch and Learn with Dr. Berry, we have a special guest, Dr. Derrick Burgess who is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and a specialist in sports medicine. Dr. Burgess is Co-Captain with his wife Myeasha, a pediatric dentist, in building a winning team with their three beautiful children. He is currently South Central Sports Medicine medical director in Laurel, Mississippi. He participates in providing world-class care for his patients and athletes in South Mississippi. Dr. Burgess is a top motivational speaker and shares his talents to inspire others to achieve their goals despite the obstacles in their way.

This week, we are going to talk about Dr. Derrick's path, including how he got his start before becoming a doctor and why he decided to go into social media, particularly podcasting. Furthermore, this episode will be amusing because there will be many similarities between the kind of path and trajectory that we are partaking in, such as the fact that we are both husbands, and a father, that has three children. Also, we both understand the importance of podcasting and delivering a message.

Dr. Derrick will talk about a lot of things in this episode that will be quite beneficial to us. The following are some of the most important takeaways from this episode;

  • Empower the audience to chase their dreams
  • Provide information to combat obesity
  • Encourage physical fitness and joint health
