Dr Felice Gersh is a multi-award-winning obstetrician and gynecologist and the founder of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine. After completing her medical training at the University of Southern California Medical School she spent many years working as a doctor of obstetrics and gynaecology where she developed a unique take on women’s healthcare and began to explore an interest in holistic approaches to healing. She later graduated from the two-year Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona and now lectures at universities and speaks at conferences around the world about the subject. She also campaigns to help increase understanding of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), the most common cause of female infertility worldwide, and recently appeared in a documentary about the benefits of fasting. She has been awarded the Orange County Medical Association’s Physician of the Year Award for 13 years running, and has received Southern California’s Super Doctor Award on several occasions. In this fascinating and moving interview, hear Felice explain what it was like being one of the first female undergraduate students at Princeton University, why she feels she benefited from her parents convincing her that she should pursue one of three possible careers, and why she plans to write a book every year.
