Duke MD PhD FACOG, America’s only dual Fertility Expert and Virologist, is a highly accomplished Johns Hopkins and Yale-trained physician, scientist, entrepreneur, blogger, podcaster, motivational speaker, philanthropist, content creator, and influencer who speaks and writes about issues as they relate to life, health, fertility, female empowerment, and international telemedicine.

In this episode, we talk about the short and long-term effects of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, what exactly an abortion involves, the surprising inflexibility of some state laws, the people who will be most impacted by a lack of access to safe abortions, what you need to think about when it comes to period tracking apps, resources you can access if you need help or support, and more.

This conversation was a breath of fresh air outside the echo chambers and hysteria on social media. If you have a different stance on this subject, I ask you to listen with an open heart and mind. Thank you for listening and being a part of my community!
