Dr. Alisa Bowersock

Dr. B grew up in Dunmor, KY and graduated from Muhlenberg South High School in 1997.  She attended Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN from 1997-2001 where she graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Biology.  From Nashville she moved to Lexington, KY to attend the newly established School of Public Health where she earned her MPH in 2003.  From Lexington she headed down the Mountain Parkway to Pikeville, Kentucky where she would receive her Doctorate in Osteopathy in 2007 under her mentor and dean Dr. John Strosnider.  “Stro” encouraged her class to be the best doctors they could be even if they could only do it for one day.   He whispered from his wheelchair at graduation in May before his death from pancreatic cancer that summer, “I told you, I told you that you could do this.”

The road from Pikeville lead to a town near Detroit, Michigan called Mount Clemens for both internship and residency.  The group of doctors that started Mount Clemens Regional Medical Center in 2007 would be “the last interns.”  They grew in knowledge and friendship and endured many hardships but were not allowed a cry day.  They came to work as snow plows some days and worked like there were no work hour restrictions.  That group made the cold of Michigan quite warm.

But the gray skies in Michigan drove Dr. B back to the beloved south. Lebanon TN has become home and the people of Wilson, Smith, Sumner, Macon, Trousdale, Dekalb, Davidson, and Rutherford counties have become family.
