SAVANNAH, GA (December 20, 2023) – The Creative Coast is excited to announce Dr. Jamal Lawrence, MD, as a GRIT 2024 keynote speaker. The annual two-day GRIT Conference unites the region’s entrepreneurs, technologists, creatives, and visionaries over inspiring keynote sessions, panel discussions, and workshops. GRIT 2024 is set to take place from February 29th to March 1st at the iconic Savannah Civic Center in Savannah, Georgia.
Dr. Jamal Lawrence, MD is a double board-certified Family Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine Physician Leader. Recognized nationally as a 40 under 40 Leader in Minority Health and a Health Equity Achieved through Lifestyle Medicine Scholar, he is also the founder of Harvest Health MD, Savannah, Georgia’s first black-owned and only male-owned and operated direct primary care practice. During his training, Dr. Lawrence became concerned with the conflict between the level of care his patients needed and the unrealistic expectations the current healthcare system places on doctors while taking care of their patients in limited settings. Harvest Health MD seeks to provide high-quality, personalized, transparent, and cost-effective care to small businesses that traditionally do not have the resources to provide employees with the healthcare experience that every person deserves.
In addition to Dr. Lawrence’s keynote talk, the event will feature numerous panel discussions and workshops on topics aligning with this year’s conference theme. The theme, which is “Leap into the Future,” celebrates the Leap Year with a vision toward tomorrow’s innovations. Recently announced panels include Mindset Mastery: Balancing Drive & Wellbeing in Entrepreneurship, Sweaty Startups: The Fusion of Tech and Traditional Trades, Health Tech Horizons: AI & New Frontiers in Medicine, and Women in Breakout Roles.
