About Erica J. Rogers, MD
I am originally from Chicago, Illinois and have lived in the Midwest for most of my life. I was interested in medicine from a very young age and consider it the ultimate honor and privilege that I was able to fulfill my dream and become a physician I attended the University of Illinois for my undergraduate work and studied cell and structural biology. I also did research in neuroscience and volunteered as an EMT during this time I then moved to St. Louis to attend Washington University in St. Louis and stayed there for my residency. I helped organize a pilot program called SPOTS (sun protection outreach teaching for students) where we trained high school students to go into the elementary schools and counsel children about skin cancers and sun protection. I loved interacting with children and making a difference in their lives.
