Strategic Partner Manager,
Lauren Steingold is a Strategic Partner Manager at Uber and currently drives Uber’s global efforts in healthcare. Lauren works with health care partners to leverage Uber’s technology platform and vast driver-partner network to improve access to care. Prior to her role at Uber’s San Francisco Headquarters, Lauren helped launch Uber in Miami, Boston, and Rhode Island. There, she led rider operations and marketing, scaling the popular consumer ridesharing app with campaigns like UberBOAT and UberYACHT.
Lauren’s most impactful campaign to date was UberHEALTH, an on demand flu prevention campaign, where riders were able to receive a flu shot from a nurse in 2014 and 2015. The initiative won an Immunization Excellence Award for Innovation at the National Influenza Immunization Summit in 2015. The national success of the UberHEALTH campaign has helped shape Uber’s vision for health care logistics.
Before joining Uber, Lauren held roles at Allen & Gerritsen, an advertising agency in Boston, and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement in Cambridge.
