Former CDC executive to discuss communication and public health

UGA’s Voices from the Vanguard series continues Feb. 17 with Glen Nowak, director of the Center for Health and Risk Communication.

Nowak’s presentation, “Communication as a Public Health Tool: Difficulties, Realities, Possibilities,” takes place at 5:30 p.m. in the Chapel. Open free to the public, the lecture will be followed by a reception at Demosthenian Hall.

Nowak will draw on his experience on the frontlines of public health, where he confronted the capabilities-and the limitations-of communication as a public health tool. He spent 14 years with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where he served as the first director of communications for the National Immunization Program and then director of media relations.
