Amy Lanza, MPH

Research Coordinator

Amy is a Research Coordinator at the Social Media and Health Innovation Lab. Prior to this role, Amy worked in healthcare consulting in Washington, D.C., with experience in providing technical assistance and data analysis to healthcare programs funded by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation. Her projects focused on testing new healthcare delivery and payment models as well as testing a cross-disability experience of care survey in Medicaid community-based long term services and supports.

Her main interests include the intersection of design, technology, and healthcare, and how behavioral economics can be used to promote healthy behaviors.

Amy received her master’s degree in public health in Epidemiology and Applied Biostatistics from Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, and completed her undergraduate degree at Vanderbilt University in Medicine, Health, and Society.

The Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation engages interdisciplinary teams to reimagine health care delivery for dramatically better value and patient outcomes.

The Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) is Penn's center for research, policy analysis, and education in health systems. Its 200 Senior Fellows analyze the medical, economic, and social issues that influence how health care is organized, financed, managed, and delivered across the U.S.

We are passionate about pursuing impactful research and eager to explore opportunities that will enable a culture of social media and health innovation at Penn, Penn Medicine, and beyond.  Have an idea for a project?  Interested in collaboration?  Click here to learn more about how to contact us.
