About the event

What is Meet the Medic? MTM is a conversation with healthcare professionals where we discuss the current state of health equity and health disparities; where you can ask questions, and where you get to experience transparency with people who care and work in healthcare. 

This month, join the conversation with Dr. Leybelis Padilla. Dr. Leybelis Padilla is a Gastroenterologist at the Naval Medical Center San Diego and the Director of Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Originally from Puerto Rico, she attend to Howard University College of Medicine in Washington DC and University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill for her Internal Medicine training. Dr. Padilla completed her Gastroenterology training in Charlotte, NC.

Dr. Padilla’s passions include increasing diversity and representation in medicine, while also integrating nutrition and lifestyle approaches to her practice. When she is not working at the hospital, you can find her working on her online gut health coaching business or enjoying the San Diego beaches with her family.
