INDIE REVIEW RADIO / DOCTOR HEVAL / INDIE HEALTH

Podcast cover
Read more
As a young Syrian Kurdish refugee washing dishes in a restaurant to support his family, Heval Kelli could not know that many years later he would be a distinguished fellow in cardiology at a university less than one mile from where his journey in the United States began.  Facing a steep language learning curve, a monthly rent payment, and mountains of dirty dishes, Heval knew things could be much worse.  He and his family fled persecution in Syria where his father was beaten and imprisoned by the pol​ice. As members of the Kurdish minority, the family had few choices and paid a smuggler to get them out.  His family arrived in Germany in 1996 and lived in refugee camps till 2001. A circuitous route of migration finally brought them to the United States 2 weeks after the 9/11 where they were assisted by members of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in their adjustment and resettlement in Clarkston, Georgia. Through a network of caring community members, Heval was introduced to Dr. Omar Lattouf, an Emory cardiothoracic surgeon who took an interest in mentoring him through his undergraduate pre-med work at Georgia State University and his admission to Morehouse School of Medicine where he graduated cum laude and selected by his classmate as "Most Inspiring Person" award. He finished his internal medicine residency training at Emory University and received recognition as resident of the year as well as honorable distinctions in social and inpatient medicine. Dr. Kelli was awarded the Katz Foundation Fellowship in Preventative Cardiology at Emory University where he completed his cardiology fellowship in 2020. As a result of his life experiences, Dr. Kelli is a steadfast advocate for serving communities in need especially immigrant, refugee and minority communities.  He is a co-founder of several non-profit organizations focused on medical mentorship (Young Physician Initiative & U-Beyond) and healthcare outreach.

INDIE REVIEW RADIO / TAMERA CURRINGTON - VEGAN SOULSISTUHS / INDIE HEALTH

Podcast cover
Read more
Tamera Currington never imagined that her desire to create a safe place for women of color around health and wellness would result in such success. Her Vegan Soul Sistuhs Facebook and Instagram groups have exceeded her wildest expectations while creating a platform for growth and discovery. The Facebook group is a dream for anyone that is curious about a vegan, vegetarian, vegan-ish or a plant-based lifestyle. It is ripe with recipes, questions about transitioning to healthier eating, health tips, and is managed by over 100 administrators.

Vegan Soul Sistuhs was founded out of the love for Tamera’s then 20-year-old daughter that was suffering from congestive heart failure. Together they adapted a plant based, vegan diet and the results were astounding. Tamera released 60 pounds and was able to make adjustments to her medication while her overall health increased. Her daughter, after suffering two strokes, was able to double her heart function and was on the mend.  She was sure that other could benefit from this information and so began her labor of love.

Two years later, Vegan Soul Sistuhs has grown to over 40,000 members, and continues to thrive. Branded merchandise includes t-shirts, hoodies, bags, and cook books. This year she is planning her first retreat in Jamaica and has launched an additional Facebook group, “VeganSoulsistuhs & the BrothasWhoLove em”, so the men can feel the love too.  

A new partnership finds Vegan Soul Sistuhs expanding beyond social media. You can expect to see them in your city soon conducting cooking classes, workshops and other branded events.
