As director of the Innovations for the Underserved program at the California HealthCare Foundation, Margaret Laws oversees the foundation’s work to reduce barriers to efficient, affordable care for the underserved.
She also created and directs the foundation’s Health Innovation Fund, a three-year, $10 million program-related investment fund that supports companies with innovations that have the potential to dramatically reduce costs and improve access to care.
Laws’ work focuses on bringing innovation into the health care safety net, providing low-income, rural and other underserved consumers with access to affordable, high-quality care. She also works with health care innovators to design affordable, user-friendly solutions for low-resource environments in the U.S.
