Office of Communications

Communication of important health messages is critical to the work of the Iowa Department of Public Health. The Office of Communications helps facilitate clear and open dialogue between the department and all Iowans.

The office provides guidance to department programs about communication and messaging to their consumers, providers and stakeholders through exceptional media relations, copywriting and editing, marketing and advertising strategy, and graphic design.  

Iowans have many ways to receive IDPH communications.  To receive IDPH news releases, visit https://www.iowa.gov/subscribe and enroll or update your subscription preferences.  For other IDPH topics, scroll down to "Public Health, Iowa Department of," and expand the section for "News & Announcements."

Iowans are also welcome to follow our social media networks on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest.  

Media inquiries and open records requests may be made through the Office of Communications.
