Luisa Duran, MD & Tammie Chang, MD
About Pink Coat, MDPink Coat, MD was created by two Ivy-League friends, Dr. Tammie Chang and Dr. Luisa Duran, who first met as Freshmen at Brown University nearly 25 years ago. Both first generation Americans and born into immigrant families, Drs. Tammie and Luisa are incredibly compassionate souls who felt called to serve others as physicians from a young age. They dedicated their lives to becoming the very best physicians only to discover they would suffer silently from physician burnout and isolation, and consider leaving medicine far too soon. Determined not to give up on their childhood dreams, they discovered a path toward empowerment and wellness through evidence-based resources like personal growth, leadership development, and most importantly, community. After learning that countless other women physicians were struggling in silence and leaving the medical profession, they created Pink Coat, MD to help women physicians thrive – and ensure the same for all future generations of young women in medicine.Thanks for tuning in!
