Office of Public Affairs

Public Affairs Services for DHHS Employees

The Office of Public Affairs is the communication arm of the department.

Media Relations

Public Affairs helps divisions and offices when they have requests from the media. All employees are encouraged to talk with reporters about their areas of expertise. But, if you aren’t comfortable talking with reporters, you will not be forced to do so. If you prefer not to talk to the media, please refer them to the Public Affairs Office at 919-733-9190. Don't ignore the media call.

Also, please inform Public Affairs whenever you've had a media contact.

More guidance is available in our media policy. The entire media training manual is also available.

Publications Support

If you are creating a document for public consumption, work with your public information officer to have it polished and approved.

Our professional graphics staff can support you with desktop publishing, logo creation, and highly formatted reports.

Website Support

Public Affairs also oversees the department's many websites. Web governance documents guide web development. The department is in the midst of a website redesign. All questions about web support can be directed to Lois Nilsen at 919-715-4394. Ready NC Connect NC
