The most important, and interesting, part of primary care for Lara is working to involve patients in shared decision making conversations to help understand what the patient’s goal is and try to achieve the outcome they are hoping for.
Lara has two children, so she tries to stay active to share activities together as a family. They all enjoy climbing, hiking, camping, and skiing.
To stay healthy, Lara strives to eat simply and exercise routinely. With two children, she seems to also be playing catch-up often. Her kids are now shifting from trying to keep up to surpassing her. Getting great sleep is also critical for Lara.
