NEW ORLEANS, LA — The National Network of Public Health Institutes (NNPHI) recently announced the addition of Katy Sandusky, as the new associate communications director. Sandusky will lead the development, execution, and evaluation of NNPHI’s communications plan and outreach strategy. She serves as the communication lead for all NNPHI programs and projects across the organization.
“I am delighted to welcome Katy to our growing network,” said Vincent Lafronza, Ed.D., M.S., president and CEO of NNPHI. “Leveraging her experience across several sectors, Katy brings important insights to the network’s multisector innovation in health. We are already learning from Katy, and I look forward to our partnership.”
Sandusky brings to NNPHI ten years of communications and marketing experience spanning professional sports, entertainment, nonprofit and disaster relief. She holds a Bachelor of Communications degree from Towson University and a Master of Business Administration degree from Loyola University of New Orleans.
“Being in New Orleans at the height of the COVID19 pandemic made me feel called to pursue a career in public health,” explained Sandusky. “That time spotlighted the racial inequities and issues of accessibility and education, not only here in New Orleans, but across the country. I believe effective communication can drive change and I’m excited to be a part of communicating the important work being done by NNPHI to improve health for everyone.”
