Dr. Ilan Shapiro’s passion has always been to convert health information into action, improving the wellbeing of our communities. Born and raised in Mexico City, he had the honor of being the liaison between Mexico and the World Health Organization after finishing Medical School. This was the moment that proved to him that healthcare systems need to be connected with the most important aspect: the community.
As a Pediatric Resident at Mount Sinai Children’s Hospital in Chicago, Dr. Shapiro was determined to make a difference in the community, so he began doing this through Policy and Advocacy. As part of these activities, in the Mexican Consulate, he created a Health Bulletin and a board of physicians to give advice in hardship moments for families. On the international arena, he had the honor to be elected for the first Advisory Board in conjunction with the Mexican Foreign Affairs and Health Ministries, for the program Ventanillas de Salud; a Federal program that devotes its efforts to improve the wellbeing of Mexicans abroad.
In 2018, Dr. Shapiro was elected to be a Board Member of LA Care and has been participating in the National Hispanic Medical Association Boards; building pipelines, services and representation of the Hispanic community.
Following his pediatric and public health passion, he practiced as a pediatrician in Florida, which led him to AltaMed, one of the largest Federally Qualified Health Centers in the US, as the Medical Director of Medical Education and Wellness with a great dynamic team serving over 300,000 patients.
