New York, NY –The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) has appointed Jordana Kier, Co-CEO of LOLA, the first lifelong brand for reproductive health, to its Foundation Board of Directors.
“We are honored to welcome Jordana Kier to our Board,” says CUNY SPH Dean Ayman El-Mohandes. “She is revolutionizing the conversations around reproductive health and enhancing the availability of products, education and policies that advance it in the workplace and society.

I am excited to contribute to the Foundation and advance the school’s mission around reproductive health.”
LOLA’s website facilitates an online community of women seeking education, networking and information about reproductive health at any age. It partners with more than 350 offices, gyms, co-working spaces, schools, and hotels to ensure their employees and guests have access to premium period products made with 100 percent organic cotton. In the realm of giving back, the company has donated over 6 million products to those in need, and fights for reproductive equity.
“Jordana Kier is an accomplished business person and visionary who is leading real change in reproductive health awareness and access,” says Adam Doyno, Executive Director of the CUNY SPH Foundation and Director of Development for the CUNY SPH. “We are delighted that she will join us and share her great insight and creativity.”
