Hi there, I am Dr. Lauren Weber. I was fortunate enough to achieve my childhood dream of becoming a doctor. I told my parents when I was four years old that was what I wanted to do, and I’ve been committed to improving the well-being of others ever since.
Knowing that my life didn’t get off to the easiest or healthiest start is essential to understanding these early aspirations. I was born at 26 weeks, 12 weeks too early. I beat all the odds and survived.
Being born so prematurely, I had to get frequent checkups, and I was always at the doctor from day one. This planted a seed of curiosity and an aspiration to become a doctor myself. This crystallized when I took some time out of my studies to care for my very sick mom, who sadly passed away from metastatic breast cancer when I was 21. Little did I know this would shape my future career in many ways.
