Dave Wollin joins Global Health Strategies after serving as a Vice President at DKC, one of United States’ top independent public relations firms. Dave brings extensive consulting experience supporting some of the country’s leading brands and non-profits, including NYU Langone Health and WebMD, to build their media relations and advance their healthcare, public affairs, and public safety objectives. He has regularly managed media efforts around large, feature-level stories and has supported health-centered campaigns. One of his proudest accomplishments is spearheading the public relations effort to win presumptive cancer coverage benefits for New York State’s 105,000 volunteer firefighters. The multiyear campaign culminated in late 2017 when legislation was signed into law granting additional benefits to volunteer firefighters diagnosed with cancer.
Beyond his media consulting work, Dave has a personal connection to improving health and well-being. He served as a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician for eight years and is driven by this passion to improve health outcomes on local and global levels.
Dave attended Colby College in Waterville, Maine, and spent a semester living and studying in Saint Petersburg, Russia. He and his fiancée live in Astoria, Queens, and greatly enjoy exploring the borough’s neighborhoods, bookshops, and eateries, and love traveling to new places.Connect on LinkedIn
