How this Doctor is Waging a War on Cancer with Dr. Nerissa Kreher

How this Doctor is Waging a War on Cancer with Dr. Nerissa Kreher

In today’s episode, I am welcoming Dr. Nerissa Kreher back to the show and we’ll be talking about something mind-blowing. Something that goes to show how we as doctors, can take charge of things to really influence change. 

Nerissa is the Chief Medical Officer of a biotech company and CEO/Founder of The Pharma IndustryMDCoach, LLC. She is passionate about developing therapies for patients with rare diseases and helping physicians secure fulfilling careers in the pharma industry. Her commitment to cancer research is personal. Having lost her mother to gastric cancer and stepmother to ovarian cancer, she is now on a mission to help other daughters avoid losing their mothers.

Dr. Kreher will be joining a team of ~25 biotech leaders on an ambitious Mt. Kilimanjaro climb. The goal of the team is to collectively raise $1.5M+ and each climber is required to raise a minimum of $50,000. While this is a challenging commitment, Nerissa isn’t taking it lightly. She is training hard to reach the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and invites you to join her with a significant sponsorship through this link:
