Dr. Byron Whyte
Dr. Byron Whyte resides in Northern Virginia with his wife and two children. He is a die-hard DC Football fan and the reigning Mario Kart champion in his home. A native of the Washington, DC area, he decided at the age of ten to become a pediatrician with the aim of helping children; his ambitions were spurred by his mother who served as a pediatric nurse. A little known fact about Dr. Whyte is that he was born at Howard University Hospital and attended HUH daycare, then graduated from the University’s undergraduate and medical programs. In addition to his training at Howard, Dr. Whyte completed a rigorous postbaccalaureate research program at the National Institutes of Health. He completed his pediatric residency at the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth, where it gets really, really cold. You can find Dr. Whyte’s on Twitter at @UrbaneDoc4Kids.
