The Weight Conversation with Dr. Gretchen Holmes - Cancering EP7

Meet Dr. Gretchen Holmes. Gretchen is a three-time cancer survivor, one of Dr. JYP's patients, and she holds a doctorate in health communications with a graduate certificate in medical behavioral science from the University of Kentucky. Presently, she works as the designated institutional official for graduate medical education programs at a healthcare system in Mississippi. On this episode, Gretchen discusses her cancering journey, kicking cancer's butt three times, not being defined by her disease, and most importantly, she will tell us all how she lost over 100 pounds and how she has kept it off.
