Broadcast BIO: Our guest today is Bahamian-born Haitian-American author, physician, and neuroscientist Dr. Cholet Josué (say sho-LAY jo-ZWAY). His experiences as an American immigrant and a neuropsychiatrist have given him a unique insight into how individuals can use specific brain tools to create their best lives. Now, he is sharing these tools with the world. Welcome to the program, Dr. Josué.
Full BIO: Dr. Cholet Kelly Josué is a Bahamian-born Haitian American author and physician seeking a home among the three cultures that have played a role in his life. Born in the Bahamas of Haitian parents who wanted their children to experience their ancestral roots, Cholet moved to Haiti with his siblings when he was four years old. There he spent the next twelve years of his life reveling in a simple and decent, if checkered, childhood until he was sent across the Caribbean Sea in a wooden boat to join his mother in South Florida after the death of his father.
While still an undocumented immigrant, Cholet earned a bachelor of science degree in chemistry from Florida Atlantic University. Then he spent the next six months at the University of Miami law library preparing to represent himself in the trial of his life: the quest to become a legal resident.
Cholet received his medical degree from Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia and did his residency at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Currently Cholet practices medicine in the greater Washington, D.C. area with a functional and integrative approach and draws on his special interest in behavioral neurology and neuropsychiatry. He is a member of the American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the Maryland Psychiatric Association, the American Neuropsychiatric Association, the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, and the Society for Neuroscience.
His forthcoming book (spring 2019) is entitled: “Twelve Unending Summers: Memoir of an Immigrant Child.” Visit www.drjosue.com.
