Dr. Paul Roumeliotis has oriented his career towards the development of multi-format health communications programs for varied global audiences. He has worked with many evolving technologies, from the analogue and pre-internet era of the 1970s to today’s instant/wireless/mobile and digital platforms. As a public health leader, he has applied his health communications experience to the delivery of public health information and content. He founded and oversees one of North America’s only public health unit “full-in-house” health communications facility and team, which have transformed the face of public health communications in eastern Ontario and beyond. His vision is consistent with the reality that education and communication are essential tools in public health practice and knowledge exchange.
