About Lauren Brave

Dr. Brave earned her undergraduate degree in Biology from M.I.T. and completed her medical training at Washington University in St. Louis. She completed her pediatric residency at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University. After residency, Dr. Brave joined the busy urgent care practice at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, a large multi-specialty clinic. After 7 years of focusing on sick care and acute injuries, Dr. Brave decided to return to well care and preventive medicine, about which she is passionate.
She met her husband, Scott, during residency and together they are parenting two wonderful children, a daughter born in 2009 and a son born in 2012. She was excited to move to the Boulder area in 2013 to be closer to family and enjoy the quality of life that mountain living has to offer.
