John Anthony Vaughn

Associate Professor in Family Medicine and Community Health

My major area of scholarly interest is in the field of Narrative Medicine.  I am particularly interested in exploring how this approach to practice can enhance both the care that clinicians provide to their patients as well as their sense of professional agency and satisfaction.  

As Director of Student Health, I am dedicated to maximizing the health and well-being of every member of the Duke student community through the delivery of professional, patient-centered and innovative health care.
