Lamercie M Saint Hilaire

Assistant Professor in Family Medicine and Community Health

I am a Family Medicine physician and enjoy providing primary care to a diverse panel of patients across the lifespan.  I am passionate about serving people with complex psychosocial and medical conditions in a compassionate and empowering manner.  I strive to promote evidence-based, full-spectrum, equitable and team-based care. I enjoy getting to know my patients in the context of their community and believe in the healing power of building trusting relationships. I feel privileged to be able to walk alongside my patients on this journey and facilitate healing in a cooperative manner.  

I also serve on faculty in the Duke Community and Family Medicine department. My passions include medical education, mentorship, diversity, inclusion and equity. I co-created an anti-oppression curriculum for healthcare professionals and facilitate workshops on unconscious bias and healthcare disparities (see publication below).
