Kathy Frasure, Family Nurse Practitioner
Kathy Frasure is a board certified family nurse practitioner, who brings to MDweightWoRx and Andry Medical Services more than 20 years of experience in the medical field. After receiving her bachelor of science in nursing from East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tennessee, she began her nursing career as an emergency room nurse working in both Martinsville and Bloomington ER’s for more than 12 years. Her time spent working in the ER exposed her to a wide variety of medical experiences, peaking her interest to return to school to obtain her master of science in nursing through the University of Indianapolis. She began her nurse practitioner career working in an Allergy and Asthma office for several years and then transitioned to work for a grant for the federal government SAMHSA (Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration) at the local community mental health center, Centerstone. The grant was charged to improve the physical health of the clients already receiving mental health services at Centerstone. Kathy and Dr. Andry worked together for 4 years on this grant overseeing the physical health care of the clients and supporting the team providing services to the clients. The grant focused on improving 5 disease states (blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes, smoking cessation, and obesity) that would in turn reduce cardiac disease and overall mortality. During the time Kathy spent working with the clients to improve their health she discovered her passion to support individuals in weight loss and weight management. Kathy brings empathy, energy, and experience to assist others in improving their health.
