Lauren is NephCure’s Vice President of Professional Relations. She oversees NephCure’s media outlets to better reach the patients, families, healthcare professionals, researchers, donors, volunteers, industry partners and other professional stakeholders who collectively make up the NephCure community. She managed the development of our online clinical trial matching tool, KidneyHealthGateway.com, and simultaneously led a parallel digital marketing campaign that helped us nearly double our patient family network. She relishes every opportunity she gets to spend with NephCure families and is constantly learning more about the patient journey. Since joining NephCure in 2014, she’s thrilled with the recent pace of new discoveries in genetic testing, clinical care and potential new treatments for patients and families affected by rare, protein-spilling kidney diseases.
Lauren has a BA in International Relations from Michigan State University and has lived in Detroit, Colombia, Chicago and Philadelphia, serving in various other nonprofit, educational, and community-based roles. She currently resides in her hometown in northern Michigan with her growing family and recently joined her local public school board.
