As one of four children, Rebecca Lorenzana, BA grew up in California and moved to the East Coast for college. She majored in Romance Languages and Literature-Hispanic Studies and minored in Global Health and Health Policy at Harvard University. There she won an award for Inspiration from Radcliffe Crew and the competitive Harvard Center Fellowship to teach English in Costa Rica. After graduating in 2012, she received a Harvard Center for Public Interest Careers Fellowship to work for Lutheran Social Services of New York. While working for the social services agency, after a hand fracture and volunteering, she developed an interest in medicine. She followed that interest and worked as a Research Assistant at the Institute for Clinical Research and Health Policy Studies at Tufts Medical Center on the project titled “A Method for Patient-Centered Enrollment in Comparative Effectiveness Trials: Mathematical Equipoise” part-time while taking pre-requisites for medical school at Harvard Extension School. She currently continues to work on that project as well joining the team for the recently funded PCORI project for Clinical Prediction Models in the Predictive Analytics and Comparative Effectiveness Center (PACE).
In Ms. Lorenzana's spare time, she enjoys team sports as well as running and swimming. She attends and is a member of Park Street Church.
