Stewart Levy


Stewart Levy’s 25-year healthcare career includes leadership positions in the pharmaceutical industry and health promotion organizations. As Director of Sales and Marketing at Novo Nordisk and then Merck, Stewart developed and implemented marketing initiatives for the largest payers and providers in healthcare, including government, managed care organizations, retail chains, and employer groups. During his tenure at Merck, Stewart was involved in helping develop the first pharmacy-based cardiovascular outcomes study, “Project Impact.” This breakthrough project involved the American Pharmaceutical Association (APhA) and helped document the effectiveness of retail-based cholesterol testing in reducing cardiovascular risk through pharmacists.

Stewart spent the next ten years as Senior Vice President and Principal of Impact Health, a national health promotion organization. Under Stewart’s leadership, the breadth of customer groups embracing health promotion expanded to pharmaceutical companies, food companies, advertising agencies, patient recruitment firms, retail chains and more. While at Impact Health, Stewart assisted and authored two outcomes studies. The first was a three-year study with over 12,000 participants which documented the metabolic risk of Hispanic populations in multiple types of venues. The second was a pharmaceutical-sponsored study which documented the effectiveness of a targeted health education campaign with biometric screening on two divergent employee populations. Under his leadership Impact Health expanded from a regional company servicing local employers and managed care organizations in the Northeast, to one of the largest national biometric screening companies in the industry.Stewart founded Health Promotion Solutions (HPS) in January of 2009 to focus on the need for effective, evidence based solutions for chronic disease prevention, identification and management. His expertise in the health promotion industry have led to business with government agencies, employer groups, retail clinics, insurance brokers, and other healthcare organizations nationwide. Stewart has presented as a leading expert at a number of healthcare conferences including the Employer Benefits Conference, Medical Fitness Association, Convergent Care Meeting, World Healthcare Congress, New York Business Group on Health, American Dietetic Association and Society for Human Resources.
