Learn more about my guest, Dr. Maryam Sedghi:
Dr. Maryam Sedghi was born in Tehran, Iran where she graduated from Medical school in 1999.
She then moved to the U.S. where she continued her medical education and completed her residency in Family Medicine. She is a Board Certified family physician and is currently the clinical director of “Macon Volunteer Clinic “ a free clinic in Macon GA where she has called home with her husband ( a local attorney) and her 2 sons ( 11 and 7) for the past 20 years.
She is also an abstract mixed media artist with focus on movements, color and depth. She truly believes on connection and healing aspects of art for both the artist and audience alike.
She admits that she went through a long period of artist block ( almost 20 years ) due to demanding nature of her medical career and motherhood and challenges of immigration and learning a new language and culture.
Despite this, she has yet again picked up painting and is enjoying it very much.
