Dr. Christopher J.W.B. Leggett
Christopher J.W.B. Leggett, M.D. is a world-renowned Interventional Cardiologist recognized as one of America’s leading physicians in the field. In the 1980s, he was one of the first African-Americans at Johns Hopkins and in the early 2000s, during the Bush Administration, he served in the department of Health and Human Services. Family is the top priority to Leggett and at an early age he learned the importance of keeping his faith as his foundation. His journey has consisted of attending some of the most prestigious schools where he met lifelong friends like John F. Kennedy Jr., and Ben Carson, M.D. Behind the accolades lies a humble man who Risen caught up with to learn more about his childhood as one of eleven kids born to a Baptist minister, navigating healthcare, and his desire to always strive for excellence while giving all the glory to God.
