Lara is a surgical sub-specialty physician in private practice interested in transitioning into non-clinical medical-related work, specifically medical/health writing. Writing has always been an interest, from creative writing (an ongoing endeavor) during and beyond college to varied forms of medical writing (including medical journal publications) throughout medical school, internship and residency. Lara pursued writing for medical advice columns, and has continued in the educator role, of both medical professionals in training as well as the lay public through presentations, lectures, hospital publications and one-on-one mentorship. Lara finds satisfaction in imparting knowledge that others may find helpful. Her strengths as a writer lie in clarity, conciseness and accuracy, as well as de-mystifying medical/scientific concepts.
