Humans of Gaming 174 | Gamer Doc on Health and Perseverance


About This Episode

Continuing our series on celebrating women in gaming, Drew Dixon hosts “Gamer Doc”, a medical doctor, a gamer, and someone who has a passion for improving the quality of life for gamers. Using her Twitch channel she hosts sessions recommending the best PC setups, console setups, and general health tips to keep you and other gamers playing as well as possible.

The pair converse about her Christian upbringing and the current state of her faith, the state of the gamer’s stereotype when it comes to personal health, and her determination to become a gamer and doctor despite being told girls don’t play Call of Duty, and doctors don’t play games at all.
