Rebecka Rosenquist MSc

Health Policy Director
Rebecka Rosenquist is the health policy director at PolicyLab at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and is a member of PolicyLab’s leadership team. Ms. Rosenquist is responsible for setting and executing the center’s policy agenda and elevating PolicyLab’s research and profile among key external stakeholders. As part of this effort, she works to align the center’s policy priorities with its research portfolios, drive the implementation of policy recommendations from PolicyLab’s research, and utilize PolicyLab’s research and expertise to be responsive to the needs of policymakers. Additionally, Ms. Rosenquist oversees the center’s relationship with CHOP’s Government Affairs team, partnering with them to share PolicyLab’s work with local, state and federal policymakers.
  • At PolicyLab, we seek to break out of the traditional academic research model to actively engage with community, advocacy, and policy partners and stakeholders on pressing issues faced by families locally, and across the state and country.

Ms. Rosenquist most recently served as the director of state engagement for Shatterproof ATLAS, a quality measurement system for addiction treatment programs. In this role, Ms. Rosenquist led Shatterproof’s partnerships with state agencies and stakeholders—including providers, payers and advocacy groups—in ATLAS pilot states.

Prior to that, Ms. Rosenquist was the associate director for health policy at the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn LDI). There, she worked to maximize the impact of Penn LDI’s research on policymakers and policy development, and led the researcher workgroup on Medicaid and an external partnership on expanding coverage.

Ms. Rosenquist has also worked in global health policy and advocacy with Action for Global Health, a cross-European alliance of non-profits funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Thomson Reuters Foundation, both in London, United Kingdom. She started her career in state and local politics, working for the political action committee EMILY’s List.

Ms. Rosenquist received her master’s degree in global politics from the London School of Economics & Political Science and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the College Scholars Program at Cornell University. She lives in Narberth with her husband and two children.
