Jamila Battle, M.D.
We never know about the private lives behind the façades people create for public consumption. Yet what shapes our lives is the raw, unvarnished, unstated, and camouflaged reality that defines our everyday existence. Dr. Jamila Battle grew up in such an illusion and suspected that her life was closer to the nightmare side than the dream. Her dad was a recognized and renowned jazz musician. Behind the mask of success and notoriety lurked a monster whom no one from the public would have recognized or believed existed. His own insecurity, fear, addictions, lies, and bad choices led him to be a violent abuser. For Dr. Battle, what she didn't know was that, while she was able to escape the abusive situation, the abuse itself followed her. Join her as she takes you on a journey of Reboot, Repair, Rebirth. Dr. Battle completed her residency at the University of Michigan.
