Welcome Back, Dr. Pimple Popper!
Dr. Sandra Lee, aka Dr. Pimple Popper™, returned to her prairie roots this week for the 2021 Women’s Power Night Against Cancer, Wed., April 14, at the Route 66 Drive-in Theater to help raise cancer awareness and research support for Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU.
Lee stars in the TLC's medical reality series "Dr. Pimple Popper™" and has a successful practice in California. She completed her dermatology residency at SIU School of Medicine in Springfield in 2003.
The lively physician entertained guests with stories of her formative years as a young doctor new to the Midwest and the discovery in 2014 that a blackhead extraction on Instagram was a way to share her medical experiences with “my people.” She now has more than 7 million YouTube followers, TV programs on The Learning Channel and Discovery+, a cosmetic line and is author of the book Put Your Best Face Forward.
