dr dyson booki‘m so excited about the release of the new book, An Apple A Day Keeps The Drama Away, by Dr. Jeri Dyson.

Dr. Dyson is a teen doc and internationally recognized for her work.

full disclosure- I have know Dr. Dyson for years and have been a fan of hers from day one.   she is super smart.   xavier med school grad and trained in adolescent medicine at john’s hopkins; so she knows her stuff!  

Dr. Dyson and i have worked together with the BET Rap It Up Campaign of which she is the medical advisor.   i could go on and on about her accomplishments.

BUT the most important thing about Dr. Dyson is her commitment and passion for helping people be their best and most healthy selves.

she currently practices medicine, so she is in the know about what’s happening with today’s youth.  in fact her radio show GET IN THE KNOW with Dr. Jeri Dyson is followed my many youth looking for advice.  Dr. Dyson realized others could use the advice she offers in her practice and with her show, so she wrote this book.  here’s what Dr. Dyson had to say about her book, An Apple A Day Keeps The Drama Away.

“In a world full of ‘reality’ shows we are being bombarded with TV DRAMA.  Our voyeristic addiction to fist fights, backbiting, name calling and sex scandals has landed some people in some unfavorable positions in the real world.   Is this art imitating life or life imitating art?  It’s good tv but bad reality.  Life is more than yanking weaves, casual sex, throwing drinks and having lunch. My desire is that this book will help people learn how to maximize their reality”

written in her unique keep it simple and fun style, An Apple A Day Keeps The Drama Away, is a great read. it’s spiritually based with bite sized nuggets that readers will love.  

i think this book is especially good for young women who are just going off to college or newly on their own.  the gems in the book will start you off on the right footing.

pick up a copy today…doctor’s orders!
