Dr. Carmen Landrau: Saving Lives via Medicine and Beyond

Intro: Dr. Carmen Landrau is a board-certified physician specializing as a cardiologist. She is also a prominent professional speaker, using her experience, knowledge, and inner commitment to empower women.

In both fields she is making a difference saving lives. In her medical practice she literally saves lives, working with a predominantly older population. In her speaking career she heals hearts metaphorically, encouraging women to recognize their talents and acknowledge their achievements.
