Public Relations


The public relations team is responsible for communicating the mission and programs of the Health & Hospital Corporation (HHC) and the Marion County Public Health Department (MCPHD). This is achieved through many different communications tools including media relations, news releases, community relations, websites, media advertising and the design and production of marketing materials such as brochures, newsletters, posters and trade show displays. The public relations team works with internal departments to ensure that accurate, timely information from MCPHD programs is shared with the community.
