About Stephanie (Founder and Owner)
Stephanie Pitsirilos-Boquín, MPH is founder of Zoe Health, LLC. She’s a public health crusader and writer.
With fifteen years experience in the field of public health, Stephanie thinks out of the medical box when promoting health, finding innovative ways to partner with multiple sectors of society to address complex public health issues. She’s been a TEDMED Great Challenge Panelist and Moderator, applying her expertise in promoting healthy lifestyles on a global discussion forum. As a former Program Manager and later consultant, she helped to create and lead NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center’s childhood obesity prevention and healthy lifestyles program CHALK (Choosing Healthy & Active Lifestyles for Kids) and the community-driven social marketing campaign “Vive tu Vida/Live your Life”, which recently received the prestigious Spencer Foreman Award for Outstanding Community Service. Her work has brought active lifestyle resources to Northern Manhattan and Pennsylvania, including NYC’s highest grossing hospital based farmers’ market, bike racks outside of ambulatory care clinics, a successful “Take the Stairs” campaign, fitness and family based after-school programs, and a healthy lifestyles marketing campaign. In this role, she has published various health education and marketing materials and guidelines for the institution. Her community model for retail outreach has recently been adopted by the Partnership for a Healthier New York City for its Manhattan work on healthy food promotion in supermarkets with Mt. Sinai Hospital. She offers the same content and design element to her work with Zoe Health.
