Conversations where we explore the new big ideas that will help make health care more affordable, more available, and more effective.


In each episode, AHIP is joined by a health care leader who shines a light on the big thing they want to see America focus on for health care improvement — from the impact of new technology like artificial intelligence to innovative solutions to effectively serve consumers.

Inside the Mind of a Global Health Equity Expert: Dr. LaShawn McIver

If you hear the words “health equity,” know this: It’s the idea that we do all we can to create ways for every American to attain their highest level of health and well-being — regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity, or where they live.

And it’s the driving force behind the work of LaShawn McIver, MD, MPH, AHIP’s senior vice president and chief health equity officer. We dove into Dr. McIver’s recent experience as the former director of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Office of Minority Health to discover how together we can create better systems of care for everyone.

Listen in for her thoughts on how health insurance providers are making health care better and more accessible. And where they are focusing next to make a difference.
