Christina V. Lozada, M.D.
Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine; Christina is a native of Brooklyn, New York with cultural roots in Ecuador and Puerto Rico. She graduated from Duke University with a degree in Biological Anthropology and Anatomy, Women’s Studies and Spanish. She completed a Premedical Graduate Health Science Certificate Program at VCU SOM before entering medical school. As a first generation Latina, her personal and professional experiences with the many racial, social and economic inequalities that transgress our society influenced her decision to become a physician. She hopes to use her unique position as a Latina physician to impact not only a patient’s overall health, but also the larger public health issues that predominate in Latino populations. Her interests include women’s health, obstetrics, mental health, global health and mentoring Latino youth in the community. During her free time, she enjoys finding new places to eat, salsa dancing, working out, reading, spending time with her twin sister and being a “titi” to her sister’s shih tzu, Chispita.
