Current Public-Health Related Activities

I am the Chief Communications Officer for Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, San Francisco's public safety net hospital and only trauma center. We are devoted to improving the health of people in this city, a very challenging and diverse population. I lead all communications, marketing, advertising, internal, online and digital communications and community affairs. A chief challenge is communicating effectively and comprehensively with audiences who are unfamiliar with our argot, tools, underlying science, and so forth. I am well-served in this role by personal experience in so many substantive policy areas - from health to energy, telecommunications to software.
