Dr. Ilan Shapiro
Dr. Ilan Shapiro was born and raised in Mexico City, he had the honor of being the liaison between Mexico and the World Health Organization after finishing Med School. This was the moment that proved to Dr. Shapiro that healthcare systems need to be connected with the most important aspect: the community.
Currently actively involved creating Binational Public Health Programs to reach Hispanic communities on both sides of the border; he was invited to become a part of The White House Hispanic Policy Group and became a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Since 2009, Dr. Shapiro has been regularly appearing on several national and international outlets (such as CNN, NBC, Telemundo, Univision, EstrellaTV and radio) to share information about emerging healthcare topics; translating “Medicalish” to an understandable language.
