Hawaii Department of Health – 1996 - 2000. The following is a sampling of articles published by Hawaii’s two major dailies as a result of coordinated media outreach I conducted while serving as Communications Director for the Hawaii Health Department. At the time Hawaii’s Health Department was the third largest in the country supporting programs that ranged from environmental health, to community hospitals. This is not a comprehensive list. I issued upwards of 500 press releases while at the Health Department and was regularly contacted and interviewed by local and national tv, radio, and print on myriad issues pertaining to the work of the department.
