About Dr. DarriaDr. Darria Long Gillespie graduated from GPS in 1996 and then became a Yale- and Harvard-trained emergency physician who is a national go-to doctor for simplifying health—particularly for women and parents. A mom of two herself, Dr. Darria regularly appears on HLN, CNN, The Dr. Oz Show, and The Doctors and is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee School of Medicine. Learn more on her website DrDarria.com. About Mom HacksWhy does society assume that good health has to be a never-ending battle? Or that poor wellbeing (and at times our sanity) is a cost of motherhood? No more. We cure diseases. We create artificial ears using 3-D printers. We solved how to pee in space. We can figure this out, too, and now Dr. Darria has done just that. As an ER doctor, Dr. Darria understands what it means to have too much to do in too little time. No matter what comes through those ER doors, she has to know, I’ve got this!But then she became a patient—and later a mom of two—and realized that she suddenly couldn’t say the same about her own wellbeing. It quickly became clear that the current health paradigm for patients was not working. Mom Hacks doesn’t add to your to-do list; it makes your list easier. So you can know, I’ve got this!
