Founder & President
MEE Productions Inc.

Over the past 25 years, Ivan Juzang has become a leading expert on health, educational and social disparities that impact low-income, underserved or devalued communities. He conducts qualitative audience research that provides an “insider’s view” of the challenging daily realities of urban living.

He has focused on identifying the barriers, arguments and counter-arguments related to helping communities of color improve their health outcomes and engaging low-income urban audiences in healthier behaviors (by making informed choices).

He has been the primary researcher on all of MEE’s national research projects, including MEE’s first national report, The MEE Report: Reaching the Hip-Hop Generation (published in 1992), This Is My Reality-The Price of Sex: An Inside Look at Black Urban Youth Sexuality and the Role of the Media (published in 2004), Moving Beyond Survival Mode: Promoting Mental Wellness and Resiliency as a Way to Cope with Urban Trauma (published in 2009), and its most recent, Inner City Truth 3 Survey (or ICT3, published in December of 2013). Ivan has been on the boards of many of the most influential foundations and non-profit agencies. He received his BS degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie-Mellon University, and his MBA from The Wharton School of Business of the University of Pennsylvania.
