Eric Nelson MD
Eric Nelson grew up in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico to medical missionary parents. Despite being a music major in college, he saw God leading him to medical school after a year spent observing his future father-in-law demonstrate a blended medical/spiritual ministry and the power of lifestyle outreach. While at Loma Linda University School of Medicine, he worked with classmates to implement a lifestyle medicine elective rotation, which included presenting a CHIP program to the community. After completing medical school in 2006, he spent a year doing oncology research and founded Western Youth Conference in Weimar, CA. Eric then completed surgical residency at University of California, Davis, finishing in 2012, and continued his work with Western Youth Conference and health outreach with his local church. He then did a Colon and Rectal Surgery fellowship at University of TN, Chattanooga and stayed on as Assistant Professor of Surgery. He attends the SouthBay SDA Church, a new church plant, where he enjoys teaching and preaching and leading health ministry endeavors such as "Dinner with the Doctor."
