Please welcome Laura Gurenlian, DO to the MOA Board of Directors! Dr. Gurenlian is a resident at Maine-Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency (Class of 2021). Dr. Gurenlian was unanimously elected to represent her colleagues at the OPTI OMT update on December 5th in Bangor. 
 
Gurenlian Laura DO (rgb) 062718.jpg
Bio: Laura always knew she wanted to go into medicine, and a desire to be hands-on drew her to osteopathic training. She finds family medicine especially appealing because of the diversity, continuity, and emphasis on patient education and wellness. She has an undergraduate degree in neuroscience from Ursinus College in PA and a graduate degree in biomedical sciences from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. As a certified personal trainer prior to matriculation at Rowan SOM, she worked with individuals transitioning out of physical therapy to ensure they could maintain therapy gains. In medical school Laura assumed a number of student leadership roles: Vice President of the Student Government Association; National Clinical Education Representative to the Council of Student Government Presidents; delegate to the AOA House of Delegates; student director of the NJ Association of Osteopathic Physician & Surgeons; student ambassador for the ED to MED Campaign; Mental Health Awareness Task Force ambassador. She co-directed the school’s Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine clinic, chaired the osteopathic medical school’s Wellness Committee, and co-founded and -directed Rowan’s Osteopathic Community Garden. In 2017, she was honored to be chosen as the RowanSOM Student DO of the Year and was the recipient of the Leonard Tow Humanism in Medicine Award (Gold Humanism Honor Society) and RowanSOM Outstanding Achievement Award in Family Medicine in 2018.
