Rebecca Calderara

Bloomberg Fellow

Rebecca Calderara has a multifaceted role spanning direct patient care and research on Tuberculosis (TB) and Latent Tuberculosis (LTBI) supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. She is a primary care nurse practitioner at International Community Health Services, a Federally Qualified Health Center where she delivers comprehensive care to patients of all ages. Concurrently, she serves as a nurse practitioner at the Public Health – Seattle & King County TB Control Program, specializing in caring for high-risk pediatric and adolescent patients exposed to TB, and as the Tuberculosis Epidemiologic Studies Consortium (TBESC) Project Coordinator and ICHS Clinical TB champion, implementing interventions to enhance TB testing and LTBI treatment in primary care settings.  

International Community Health Services (ICHS) based in Seattle, Washington, is a Federally Qualified Health Center dedicated to providing culturally and linguistically appropriate healthcare to underserved, economically disadvantaged, and culturally diverse communities. Since starting as a store-front clinic in 1973, ICHS has grown to serve approximately 30,000 patients in 70 languages across 11 clinics and sites throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. Though ICHS has expanded, its mission to provide culturally and linguistically appropriate health services to improve the health of Asian Pacific Islanders and the broader community has not changed.
