How did Lauren Gray Gilstrap die? The rumors debunked

Lauren Gray Gilstrap, 38, died on 21st October 2022. The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, which she joined in 2018, announced the passing via Twitter. Gilstrap was a star on the rise at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, having secured promotion to the Program Head for Advanced Heart Disease and Transplant Cardiology in the Heart and Vascular Center. 

According to The Dartmouth, College President Phil Hanlon wrote: “[Gilstrap] was truly a ‘triple threat’ – an amazingly effective clinician, outstanding scholar, and gifted educator who was an inspiration to her fellow clinicians, as well as her patients and their families, her MD and MPH students, the LGBT community, and her family and friends.”

Lauren Gray Gilstrap’s cause of death remains a mystery

Lauren Gray Gilstrap’s cause of death hasn’t been released. She’s received effusive praise from colleagues and friends, but no one has reported on the reason behind her passing. 

Gilstrap leaves behind her wife, Janet, and their two children, Katelyn and David. She’s also survived by her parents, brother, sister-in-law, and two nieces. Her memorial service was held at The Church of Christ at Dartmouth College in late October 2022. 

The secrecy surrounding Lauren Gray’s cause of death had led to the emergence of rumors surrounding her death. Conversation threads on Twitter, Reddit, and internet forums theorize that Lauren passed away by suicide or due to coronavirus vaccine complications. 

Without information from Gilstrap’s family, we can’t confirm Lauren’s cause of death. A handful of netizens commenting about Gilstrap are unconcerned about the unsubstantiated rumors surrounding her death and are rightfully mourning the passing of a brilliant medical professional.@A_Schwa tweeted:

“I’ve been thinking a lot about the death of Lauren Gilstrap, a talented young cardiologist and researcher. So much left undone. So tragic. It’s been hard reflecting on the doctors and med students I trained with who died young. Life is so fragile.”
