Dr. Vater: How to SMILE through Challenges
Laura B. Vater, MD, MPH is a Hematology/Oncology Fellow at Indiana University School of Medicine.
Influenced by her mom, an Internal Medicine physician, and dad, a safety engineer and community leader, she developed an early interest in medicine and care for humanity. Throughout her medical training, Laura has remained interested in preventive health, the vital role of communication and humanism in medicine, and promotion of clinician health.
In 2017, she developed a tool to help patients and clinicians simplify and prioritize health (the SMILE Scale). This tool is being used in schools and clinics in the U.S. and England.
Laura enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with her husband, daughter, and dog.
