Dr. Connie Mariano is used to breaking barriers, used to shattering the glass ceiling. She has achieved an impressive list of "firsts" that include:
- the first military woman to become the White House Physician to the President
- the first woman Director of the White House Medical Unit
- the first Filipino American in US history to become a Navy Rear Admiral
These amazing achievements are just the tip of the iceberg of accomplishments for this remarkable woman, told with grace, humor and passion in her new book, The White House Doctor: My Patients were Presidents.
Mariano served nine years as White House doctor, first for the final year of the term of George H.W. Bush, then for the entire eight years of Bill Clinton, and lastly, during the first year of George W. Bush’s first term in office. During that time she not only cared for the leader of the free world and the entire First Family, she also cared for dignitaries, and traveled all over the world with the Presidents in her charge. From meeting the Pope four times to greeting King Juan Carlos of Spain to spending a night on the Queen of England’s yacht, Mariano saw a glittering side of life few get to experience. Glamour aside, being the White House Doctor to the President involved tremendous pressures.
Today, Dr. Mariano is the founder of the Center for Executive Medicine, a medical concierge practice providing presidential-quality medical care to CEOs and their families.
Tonight Dr. Mariano will share an intimate, fascinating, poignant insider’s view of the presidential office, of a life that few will ever have the chance to know about or experience.
