Antonella Sturniolo, MPH: CEO & President

It has been Antonella’s passion to conduct research on intrauterine devices, more specifically the Ypsilon Intrauterine Device invented by her grandfather Dr. Soichet. She has always been intrigued by medicine and health technology, initially pursuing a degree in biology at Columbia University before graduating from the University of Pennsylvania where she conducted research on women’s health. Antonella has experience as a Director of an NGO that delivers affordable sexual and reproductive health (SRH) solutions in some of the world’s most complex humanitarian settings and operating environments. She has also worked for the Bloomberg American Health Initiative and for the United Nations’ Department of Global Communications researching the impact of COVID-19, and solutions to issues such as proper sanitation, nutrition, education, and healthcare in nations heavily impacted by this pandemic. Antonella received a Master of Public Health degree from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health focused on reproductive health, policy, and management.  Antonella’s interest in the health field stemmed from when she was just five years old, caring for her mother who was diagnosed with melanoma. Since then Antonella has been inspired by her family history to pursue a career in the healthcare industry. Her grandfather, an Ob/Gyn, made great contributions to women’s health. Antonella will bring the Upsilon IUD device to market and offer the women of the world the contraceptive choices they deserve.
