Doctor Mom E 

Hi! I’m Doctor Emily VinZant 

(or Doctor Mom E)

I am proud to be equally MD and M-O-M. When you are a Doctor, everyone wonders about your credentials. Let’s get that out of the way first:
  • University of Kansas – Bachelor’s Degree in Middle Secondary Education
  • Saint George’s University School of Medicine – Doctor of Medicine
  • University of Kansas School of Medicine – Residency in Family Medicine
  • American Board of Family Medicine – Certification

I love Family Medicine because I genuinely love people. Maybe too much. My husband, Brian, regularly reminds me to worry about myself and not everyone else. I am especially interested in obesity medicine and have incorporated that into my own clinic for over 8 years. Obesity truly is the medical epidemic of our lifetime – we can’t just ignore that. 

I am involved in the community:
  • Associate Clinical Professor – University of Kansas School of Medicine
  • American  Heart Association Go Red ICT Keynote Speaker -2018
  • Go Red Chair for ICT – 2019
  • Advisory Board Hope is Alive Ministries

So, now for the good stuff. 

I am also the mother of a 1-year-old daughter, Eliza, and a 16-year-old daughter, Ella. I have 3 step-sons (Austin (22), Alec (20), and Adam (14)), a husband, and a yellow lab named Ace. And my life has been anything but simple. I was pregnant with my daughter my first semester of medical school, spent my daughter’s first birthday on an island just destroyed by a hurricane, and struggled through life as a divorced, single-mom, medical resident. I met my husband, moved to the country, and we had a baby the week our youngest turned 13. And I really do love my life.

I love to write and I love to teach. This blog is my answer to the repetitive question,

“What would you do for your family member?”

Modern day health care can be complicated and confusing for all of us, especially young parents. My goal is simplify this for you. 

Thanks for joining me on this journey!
