Dr. Lauren Outlaw
My name is Dr. Lauren Outlaw, and I am a board certified Ob-Gyn born and raised in South Bend, Indiana (there's more than corn in Indiana). I attended Xavier University of Louisiana. While at Xavier, I joined the Chemistry Club, Psychology Club, Alpha Epsilon Delta, and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. I like to spend my free time volunteering with my sorority and various other organizations including the Upward Bound Trio Program. I graduated from Xavier University Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Chemistry. I then matriculated to Indiana University School of Medicine as a Rawl's Scholar.
Medical school is where I was able to combine two of my loves, traveling and medicine. While in medical school, I had the opportunity to go to Guatemala and Honduras where and volunteered and took medical Spanish classes. My mission work continued after graduation as an Obstetrics and Gynecologic resident at Indiana University School of Medicine. Obstetrics and Gynecology combined the things that were most enjoyable to me about medicine, continuity of care and surgery. Obstetrics and Gynecology at Indiana University also gave me the opportunity to help make a positive impact on young women both locally and internationally.
I returned to Northern Indiana after my residency and worked in Elkhart for three years. While working in Elkhart, I participated in the annual Pap-A-Thon and spoke at various community events about health care. This past year, I have worked in Aweil, South Sudan as a medical officer for Medecins Sans Frontieres Doctors Without Boarders, in a Burmese Refugee camp with the Shoklo Malaria Research unit as an Ob-gyn, and as a locum ob-gyn physician in rural areas of Indiana.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, volunteering with her sorority, watching movies, and reading a good book. I am excited to settle down on the east coast and join the team while continuing my love of working with patients from different ethnic backgrounds.
