Season #2

Denise Billen-Mejia


in this episode I am chatting with someone I talk to often, since we became accountability partners several months ago but it was a delight to learn more about my guest Dr Melinda Williams Willingham.

An experienced pediatrician who completed her residency in 1998 and  in private practice for almost 25 years she recognized early the influence of politics and policies on healthcare and she took on leadership roles in the Georgia Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and was appointed to the National AAP committee on federal government affairs.

In 2017, Melinda attended a technology conference that gave her a fresh perspective on the changing healthcare landscape. Inspired by this, she co-founded a nonprofit organization using telemedicine and a mobile unit to provide healthcare to underserved children in schools. Seeking to deliver innovative and patient-centered care while avoiding an overwhelming patient load, she decided to start her own solo practice. Despite launching during the pandemic, her practice has flourished, making a positive impact on the community.

She loves to share her experience with other physicians and can be reached though social media channels
