Lauren is from Naperville, IL, by way of Washington D.C., Guadalajara, Mexico,
and currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. Since second grade she has been
fascinated by the field of medicine, and has long aspired to be a physician. In
earning her Master of Urban Public Health and doing medical missions in Mexico and Guatemala, Lauren’s vision of typical medicine has changed and expanded into a wider realm. Her passion for impacting disparities as they exist has encompassed her experiences in Hollywood in being on various tv sets and
holding a billboard placement throughout the city for AIDS Healthcare
Lauren aims to tie together both the healthcare industry and
entertainment industry to create change and promote healthy lifestyle behaviors
and has done so in the past with authorship in a farmers market grant, as Event Coordinator with the Amber Rose Annual Slut Walk, her AHF billboard placement for the Reducing the Stigma Campaign, and her role in the Magic Johnson Foundation's 20th Anniversary Documentary. Her perspective of public
health drives her to impact the world with the power of
shared experiences, outreach and policy change. It is her firm belief that through education,
initiatives, and events designed to harness the social power of individuals, we can foster productive relationships and mitigate health disparities.
