TALLAHASSEE—State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health today appointed Nathan Dunn as the Department of Health’s (DOH) new Communications Director, effective Feb. 15. Dunn replaces Hue Reynolds, who will be spearheading the agency’s new internal marketing efforts across the state. Dunn will be responsible for overseeing the Department’s strategic communications, with a particular emphasis on leveraging media and public relations to convey relevant public health messages to a variety of audiences.
“The Department of Health is fundamentally a communications company,” said Dr. John Armstrong. “I am delighted that Mr. Dunn is joining our team—his talent will enrich our comprehensive communications strategy and expand our opportunities to meet the health information needs of Floridians.”
Prior to joining the Department, Dunn served as the District Director for U.S. Congressman Daniel Webster in Winter Garden, Fla. He has extensive experience with constituent services, community relations and organizational leadership. For five years, Dunn was the Vice President of Public Policy and Communications for the Florida Family Policy Council, where he was able to direct public policy, guide legislative initiatives and manage countless volunteers through a successful passage of an amendment to Florida’s constitution. Dunn also served as the Director of Communications for Campus Crusade for Christ for nearly a decade, and led corporate communications for the national collegiate division with 1,600 employees, 3,000 donors and 50,000 participating students.
Dunn received his bachelor’s degree in Economics from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA.
