In today’s episode I speak with Dr Leanne Armitage. Leanne is a qualified medical doctor and the founder of the Armitage Foundation, a charity that aims to increase diversity across UK medical schools. She has been recognised as a Queens Young Leader, a LinkedIn Top Voice and has been interviewed and profiled by a number of news outlets such as BBC Radio, Channel 4 News and the Evening Standard.
We discuss quite a few things in this episode such as the tragic event that led Leanne to pursue a career as a Doctor, why the medical profession is heavily populated with people from privileged backgrounds and how having a powerful why is the tool that can enable you to overcome any obstacle that may come your way. From our conversation you’ll quickly find that Leanne is quite the inspirational character and I’m excited for you to listen in.
