Lauren S. Rosenthal, MPH, is the Director of the American Cancer Society National Lung Cancer Roundtable (NLCRT). She is responsible for directing, implementing, and evaluating long-term priority activities and initiatives, developing strategic concepts, and creating and maintaining high-level collaborative partnerships with key partners and NLCRT member organizations around shared goals.
Prior to joining the NLCRT, Lauren led the management of key regional and global health programs focusing on the American Cancer Society’s global priorities and partnership initiatives, working closely with key policy and government stakeholders, funders, and cancer control partners internally and externally to promote women’s cancer and non-communicable diseases programs. Lauren managed the American Cancer Society-founded Global Scholars Program, which allows high-achieving young professionals from Africa and India to hone their public health research, communications and advocacy skills with expert scientists, researchers, and advocates from the American Cancer Society.
Previously, Lauren was the Medical Affairs and Public Health Liaison from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, to the Preventive Health Partnership, a collaboration among the American Cancer Society, the American Diabetes Association, and the American Heart Association. The Partnership’s aim was to stimulate substantial improvements in prevention and early detection of chronic diseases through greater public awareness about healthy lifestyles. In this role, Lauren managed the medical- and public health-related programs, communications, creation and promotion of health message materials, and relationships on a national platform.
Lauren holds a Master’s degree in Public Health, with a concentration in epidemiology, from Emory University’s Rollins School of Public Health and a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Kenyon College.
