The Janiyah Strong Foundation has been anticipating this announcement, since the day she confirmed. We are thrilled to announce our Keynote Speaker for our 2nd Annual Red Out for Congenital Heart Disease Gala 2024 is non other than the prestigious Gretchen Gillyard Petterway.

Dr. Gretchen Gillyard Petterway has forged an illustrious career in healthcare, driven by an
enduring childhood ambition to become a physician. Her path was carefully charted during her
studies at Grambling State University, where she immersed herself in biology and pre-medicine,
setting the stage for her extraordinary journey.
Her premedical tenure as a clinical research associate at Louisiana State University Health
Sciences Center in Shreveport marked a pivotal phase, deeply influenced by the guidance of
Bishop Fred Caldwell at Greenwood Acres Full Gospel Baptist Church. Here, she learned the
power of visionary pursuits, translating her aspirations into a written vision rooted in faith and
purpose.
Bearing witness to the manifestation of her dreams, Dr. Petterway attained her Doctor of
Medicine Degree from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Shreveport in 2006,
followed by an outstanding pediatric residency at LSU Children’s Hospital. Her residency was
adorned with prestigious awards, including Intern of the Year and recognition for her exceptional
service and leadership.
Her academic journey soared to greater heights with her graduation from Harvard Medical
School in 2020, where she delved into Pediatric Leadership and relished the enriching
experience of studying abroad in London, England.
Additionally, in 2023, Dr. Petterway expanded her expertise by completing an advanced
program through Harvard Medical School Executive Education. She received a certification in
Health and Wellness: Designing a Sustainable Nutrition Plan, further enriching her knowledge
and commitment to holistic healthcare. This certification has equipped her with the tools to
seamlessly incorporate Lifestyle Medicine principles into her practice, emphasizing the
importance of lifestyle factors in preventing and treating diseases.
For over a decade, Dr. Petterway has been a steadfast pillar in pediatric care in Shreveport, LA,
contributing significantly at Christus Pediatric Associates and as a guiding force at four Christus
Health School-Based Health Clinics. Her recent transition to Mid City Pediatrics marks a fresh
chapter in her pursuit of delivering compassionate and comprehensive healthcare.
Beyond her medical vocation, she is a dedicated wife and mom, a published author, a dynamic
professional speaker, and a tireless advocate for empowering children and teenagers to
embrace their inner strength.

Recognized for her exceptional contributions, she is a distinguished member of Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, Inc., honored with prestigious awards such as the African American Award and
the KSLA Black History Month Trailblazer Recognition.
Rooted in unwavering faith and gratitude, Dr. Petterway attributes her journey and
accomplishments to divine guidance and remains dedicated to serving her patients, embodying
the healing ministry of Jesus Christ through her medical practice.
Her life is a testament to the transformative power of faith, perseverance, unwavering
dedication, ongoing education, and a commitment to integrating Lifestyle Medicine into her
practice, inspiring others to pursue their dreams with determination and compassion.

We are so honored to have Dr. Gretchen Petterway as our Keynote speaker.
