Sitting down with Google’s Ivor Horn


Physician Ivor Horn has led Google’s health equity efforts since 2020; her team of public health experts, social and behavioral academics, and doctors with experience with marginalized communities advise Google teams about how to make products like search, YouTubeFitBit, and Google Cloud more equitably accessible.

I chatted with Horn ahead of Google’s health equity summit.
