Lauren Barrison: "My White Coat Means"

my white coat means a multifaceted view of health

My white coat means appreciating all of the aspects that contribute to my patients' health. As a double Hoya with a unique Georgetown degree in International Health, I have become one with the idea that health requires caring for the whole person. The diverse experiences that Georgetown has afforded me both locally and abroad over the past five years have shown me that the most important aspect of being a care provider is listening. My white coat means that I will dedicate myself to listening to my patients to understand how I can best support their emotional and physical well-being.
