Public Health Epidemiology Conversations

Nov 2, 2021

Zoila Reyna had an unusual introduction to public health. Her first job out of college, which she found on Craigslist, involved recruiting youth to be undercover tobacco purchasers for the Federal Drug Administration. This position opened her eyes to the wide ranging impacts of public health on communities, and she was hooked. Zoila’s passion for serving others, and her hard working nature, have taken her from nonprofits, to government organizations, to corporates, and most recently, to the world of entrepreneurship.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Zoila founded Public Health Hired, a company which aims to demystify the public health hiring process and provide support to public health professionals.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear about the path that led Zoila to where she is today, including the rough patches, and the practical ways in which she is now helping other public health professionals reach their full potential.
