Lauren Rosas grew up in Pico Rivera, CA. She graduated from Stanford University with a degree in International Relations. Soon after, she completed a Master’s degree in Education and teaching credential program at University of California, Los Angeles, focusing on urban education. While working as a high school teacher, she faced first-hand experience of health inequalities and decided to dedicate herself to working with medically underserved and historically marginalized communities. Lauren completed a post-baccalaureate program at California State University Fullerton, where she was the leader of several pre-health clubs, including the Latino Medical Student Association (LMSA). She volunteered with the Health Scholars Program, which works to improve the health and well-being of underserved patients in Orange County, where she coordinated, designed, and facilitated group medical visits to Spanish-speaking patients at two federally qualified health centers to educate patients on nutrition and wellness. As a medical student, she is a part of the medical student council and is actively involved with LMSA and the Infectious Disease Interest Group. In her spare time, Lauren likes to nap, play with her cats, and travel.
