Healthcare Administration

Anooja Rangnekar
  • I work as a Manager of Medicaid Business Development at Health Care Service Corporation, where I lead and support quality improvement initiatives for some of the company's most vulnerable populations. I earned my undergraduate degree from Loyola's Health Systems Management program, and my master's degree from Rush University. I am thrilled to be an adjunct faculty member at the Parkinson School at Loyola - a University that is near and dear to me - where I teach an undergraduate course on Healthcare Data Analytics. When not at work or teaching, I enjoy traveling, running along the Chicago lakefront path, and spending time with family and friends.

    What "called" you to/attracted you to Loyola?
