About Jennifer Rapoza
Jennifer Rapoza earned her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing, with a minor in sociology, from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. She then furthered her medical expertise, earning her Master of Science degree in nursing, primary care, with a concentration in women’s health, from the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions. Her clinical interests include obesity medicine, metabolic syndrome, pre-diabetes, and diabetes.
Jennifer’s personal philosophy of care is rooted around her belief that there is no one size fits all model to treating obesity, and that the care administered needs to be tailored to a patient’s goals and needs. After 20 years of practicing in primary care, she learned that in order to reverse or even prevent certain chronic illnesses, she wanted to help treat the root cause of these illnesses – obesity.
When not at work, Jennifer loves to garden, cook, kayak, and spend time with her family and friends.
