M. James Lozada, DO

Dr. M. James Lozada is an award-winning, nationally recognized, physician journalist.  He is one of the few people in the United States who worked as a journalist before becoming a medical doctor.  He serves frequently as an expert consultant to working journalists, and has published numerous scholarly works. 

Dr. Lozada enjoyed a six-year broadcast news career where he worked as a reporter and anchor, often covering healthcare, politics and breaking news.  He has interviewed four former U.S. presidents, covered the space shuttle Columbia disaster and return to flight of the space shuttle Discovery, and highlighted ethical concerns surrounding clinical trials of the blood substitute Polyheme.  “I witnessed amazing moments and horrible tragedy while covering everything from local news to national events, “Dr. Lozada said.  “I interviewed thousands of people and gained invaluable insight into human nature and what motivates people.”  Dr. Lozada felt he could make a larger impact in his community as a physician, so started a 12-year journey to become an obstetrical anesthesiologist.

After attending medical school in Pennsylvania, Dr. Lozada returned to Texas to complete an anesthesiology residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch-Galveston.  He then moved to Chicago to complete an obstetrical anesthesiology fellowship at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.  Dr. Lozada works daily to protect the health and safety of mothers and babies during high-risk pregnancy, labor and delivery and postpartum.  His research efforts focus on using big data and informatics to reduce maternal mortality rates, examining maternal mortality review committees and studying the use of digital and social media for patient engagement, medical education and health improvements.  He has published work on social media in medicine, care of obstetric patients and anesthesiology.

Dr. Lozada is a skilled communicator and passionate storyteller.  He uses social media, video production, podcasting and voiceover to reach patients.  “We each have stories and I love telling them! I’m a journalist at heart,” Dr. Lozada said.  “My goal is to take tough topics, and explain them simply in ways that are innovative and impactful to patients.”
