Jun 27, 2022

Dr. Kim Williams is a nationally renowned cardiologist who has long advocated for disease prevention through nutrition. He is the incoming chair of the University of Louisville Department of Medicine, and most recently served as the chief of the Division of Cardiology at Rush University and associate dean for faculty diversity, equity and inclusion. He is also a past president of the American College of Cardiology and the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology, and former chairman of the board of directors of the Association of Black Cardiologists.

Dr. Williams is an expert in health equity, and the founder of the Urban Cardiology Initiative in Detroit, a program that works to reduce ethnic heart care disparities.

In our conversation today, you’ll want to hear his fascinating personal story of growing up on the South Side of Chicago, and how the poor care he received as an 11-year old helped inspire his medical career. And the data he shares on nutrition’s impact on disease prevention and longevity may have you rethinking your own diet!
