The Driven Entrepreneur with Matt Brauning

How Generosity Reduces Stress with Dr. Katrina Nguyen

August 26, 2022

EP #308 -This week on the podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Katrina Nguyen, an award-winning, board-certified pediatric gastroenterologist, founder of a nonprofit to fight childhood obesity, and author of Live to Give as we discuss How Generosity Reduces Stress!

She was just 14 months old when her family escaped by boat from communist Vietnam in April 1975 after the Fall of Saigon. She nearly died twice during her journey to freedom and the American Dream.

She is a Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Rockford. She has shared her expertise via EWTN Global Catholic Network, YMCA podcast, and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Her Christian faith drives her to serve others. She established a charity fund with Raymond James and her nonprofit’s sponsors include Chick-fil-A and Panera Bread. Dr. Nguyen lives in Illinois with her husband Marconi. She enjoys being a dog mom, gardening and traveling.
