Dr. Brannon’s Career and Family
Greg’s story is not unlike the miracle so many in our great nation have experienced through hard work and God’s providence. Born in a working class neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles, Greg and his brother were raised by a single mom who set an example of hard work and determination.
In a tribute to this example, Greg was the first member in his family to go to college, earning a scholarship to the University of Southern California, where he received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Biological Science in 1982; his Medical Degree from the Chicago Medical School in 1988; his OB/GYN Residency was performed at Los Angeles County/ USC Women’s Hospital in 1992; and he was a Clinical Professor at UNC/Wake AHEC from 1993-1994 before opening his OBGYN practice in Cary, NC in 1993.
With a patient network of more than 20,000 built over 20 years on compassion and trust, Dr. Greg Brannon is one of North Carolina’s leading voices on health care. He’s experienced firsthand a healthcare system in disarray.
Strongly committed to the sanctity of life, Greg is a Board Member of Hand of Hope, a pregnancy support group in Fuquay-Varina, NC, and is a member of AAPLOG, an organization of pro-life OBGYN doctors.
Having built his medical practice from the ground up, Greg embodies America’s entrepreneurial spirit, and is also an angel investor in start-up companies that span IT, energy, and other technology areas.
Greg and his wife, Jody, have been married for 25 years and have 7 children. Greg and Jody are committed to their community and helping others.
As a Christian, Father and devoted husband, Greg is involved in coaching his children’s athletic teams, was a Charter Family and Board member of Cary Christian School, is a leader in men’s Bible Study for over 14 years, and has traveled the globe on Christian and medical missions in Africa and Central America.
Feeling compelled to take action, in 2009 Greg began a mission to humbly communicate our Founders message with the desire to ensure that the American Dream, which he has been fortunate to live, will be available to future generations.
Greg has sought to enable North Carolinian’s to hold tightly to their individual Right to the American Dream through the tenacity of Truth found in our nation’s founding documents.
At his first speech in 2010, Greg spoke to a large Tea Party event in Winston-Salem, has been featured on WRAL news as a healthcare expert, and over the last few years has had the pleasure of sharing his passion for this country and its founding principles with dozens of Tea Party, Republican Party Auxiliary and Conservative groups across the state.
Dr. Greg Brannon is a hard-working, dedicated physician, not a career politician. His entrance into politics is indicative of his life’s work: a desire to diagnose problems and provide practical solutions.
