This Morning on Taking it to the Streets

This morning on “Taking it to the Streets” my guest will be Adrian Thompson Co-Founder of “Young Doctors DC”.

It’s all about mentoring and there’s a wonderful program underway right her in the DMV where young men are paired up with doctors to get one on one mentoring and skills on what it’s like to be a physician. Young Doctors DC (YDDC) is a multi-generational mentoring, education, and pipeline to health careers program for high school boys in Southeast Washington, DC. Through intensive summer programs and Saturday academies at Howard University, YDDC participants are trained in preventive medicine, mental health, and health issues in underserved communities. Selected youth join YDDC during their freshmen year of high school and remain in the program until graduation.

After one year of training in the summer program and Saturday academies, the “young doctors” begin the service learning component of the program, which includes conducting free health clinics in their community under the supervision of YDDC staff doctors.

Tune into Taking it to the Streets weekday mornings at, 6:46am, 7:13am and at 8:13am on the Steve Harvey morning show.
