Evangeline Lausier, MD
Eve Lausier has recently joined the faculty at Duke Integrative Medicine. After completing the Associate Fellowship of the Program in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, she is transitioning from the Division of General Internal Medicine to the new Integrative Medicine Center at Duke.
Originally from Maine, Eve is currently living
in exile until she can retire back to Maine
in a while. "I can never get used to the summers down in North Carolina, but I
sure can get used to the winters!" Meanwhile she's doing her best to
keep the standards up in her interactions about Integrative Medicine with
colleagues ad learners, as well as with patients. "I'm uniquely
placed to offer new integrative options in discussions about patient care and
take up the "big picture" stance. Colleagues come to me for
information and advice and I feel that I'm more an agent of transformation now
then ever. I really feel fulfilled in my practice now and am deeply
indebted to the Bravewell Collaborative for giving me the chance to transform
my own life as well as my colleagues at Duke."
Eve has had a lifelong interest in herbal folklore and the evolving science in botanical medicine. She recently joined the American Society of Pharmacognosy, and continues to advocate for better training in botanicals for med students, residents, and colleagues. Her next goal is to develop an herb garden at the new facility in Durham. She wants to draw on the rich tradition of botanical medicine in the Piedmont/Appalachian areas, as well as promote the green principles inherent in the new Center at Duke.
