Trish Taylor, executive VP at Hager Sharp, has joined Weber Shandwick to lead its Washington healthcare practice.
The more than 20-year veteran also did stints at KRC Research, Ogilvy and FCB.
She has handled the National Institutes of Health, US Dept of Health and Human Services (Let’s Move! and President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the White House’s Office of National Drug Council Policy.
At the Interpublic unit, Taylor will work on public health, patient advocacy, public affairs and health provider education initiatives.
Jamie Dowd, North American healthcare lead at Weber, said Taylor will help “clients and our teams navigate rising challenges with agility and resilience now and in a post-pandemic future.”
