Who is Dr. Eadie?

For the past twenty years, Dr. Eadie empowers adolescents and her patient’s parents through treating and teaching preventative methods for illnesses through healthy and safe lifestyles and habits. She has accomplished her childhood dream of not only becoming a physician but turning her vision into reality to become one of few private solo practitioners in her industry today. Her reward for faith and endurance is a successful thriving medical practice, Peds In A Pod Pediatrics, LLC, that has been in existence for ten years. The practice prides itself on its concierge approach to service which has sustained it’s success for over a decade. Her practice is accepting new patients for intake at www.pedsinapod.net.
After earning her medical degree to pursue her dream of becoming a pediatrician, she trained at Children’s Hospital of Michigan/Wayne State University in Detroit and received the highest level clinical exposure of pediatric diseases and acuity. Dr. Eadie returned to her hometown of Baltimore to serve the community.
The focal point of Dr. Eadie’s passion and purpose is uplifting African American and underprivileged communities. In her early career, she and two colleagues co-founded a non-profit mentoring program, Soul Sisters, to establish a collaboration between female professionals and female adolescent youth in the Baltimore Metropolitan area. The program’s vision was to mentor youth and teach them to foster positive interpersonal relationships with one another.
Dr. Eadie most recently founded the Underground Pipeline to Medical Sciences (UPTMS), a mentor program purposed to increase the matriculation of Black undergraduate students to graduate in their science career of interest by teaming each with medical professional mentors in their prospective future careers. The urgent necessity for this program is to extinguish the declining numbers of representation of African Americans in the medical sciences.
Her newest venture is Baby Docs, a Live stream via social media, where she and a colleague share medical topics and answer questions from the community during a vulnerable time in this global pandemic.
Dr. Eadie spends her leisure time with her family, teaming with her husband to supplement their son and daughter’s education and athletic goals.

It is a book designed to conquer the fears of mothers with sons of color in American society by giving them strategies to equip him to succeed and compete with his counterparts. Family, health and community are Dr. Eadie’s passions and driven purpose.
