Ivelyse Andino      

Founder & CEO of Radical Health

Ivelyse Andino is a visionary healthcare abolitionist and health equity strategist building community at the intersection of health, equity, and tech. Andino is using her platform to advocate for comprehensive healthcare fluency: an original concept created to bridge the gap between systemically marginalized communities and the medical system as we know it today. Andino’s mission is to engage, equip, and empower all people to understand and advocate for their health.

She plays an imperative role as the founder and CEO of Radical Health, the first Latina-owned-and-operated Benefit Corporation in NYC, that is building community at the intersection of health, equity, and tech. Since 2012, Radical Health has worked to activate healthcare’s most historically silenced, ignored, and underserved communities by pairing indigenous restorative circle practices with cutting-edge, person-centered innovation and technology.

Andino is a former commissioner at the NYC Commission on Gender Equity and serves on the board of BX (Re)Birth Collective, an advocacy organization that builds alternate solutions to protect birthing people in the Bronx. Andino is also an external advisor for the American Medical Association’s Equity and Innovation Board.

She was awarded the ‘My Brother’s Keeper’ Grant by the Obama Foundation to address Social Determinants of Health in NYC Community Schools and was recognized by Rock Health’s Top 50 in Digital Health Luminaries for 2021. She is a 2019 Roddenberry Foundation Fellow and a 2022 Aspen Institute Health Community Fellow.

Andino is always a passionate leader for her hometown of The Bronx and New York City. In 2022 she was named New York City’s Top 25 Whole Health Heroes by Empire BlueCross BlueShield and Crain’s New York.

Her work has been featured in the Washington Post, Nasdaq, Crain’s New York, and Forbes, with bylines in Latina Magazine and Well + Good. She’s shared her radical vision for transforming healthcare at Aspen Ideas Festival, Harvard Intercollegiate Business Convention, and the inaugural TedX Bronx. When Andino isn’t changing the game of the health industry, she is an avid runner; completing two half marathons, a dedicated playlist curator, and loves supporting new and emerging artists.
