Jim Garrow is the Operations and Logistics Manager for the Bioterrorism and Public Health Preparedness Program in the Division of Disease Control at the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. He works to develop public health emergency response plans and manages the daily operations and logistics of the Program.
Jim’s true passion lies in public information, especially emergency risk communication and crisis communication. At work, he is the sole author of the Department’s Emergency Public Information and Communication plan, provides occasional media relations coverage for the Department and manages or supports most of the Department’s social media accounts.
He is also, obviously, very involved in social media in his private time. Aside from writing the Face of the Matter blog, Jim has presented across the U. S. and Canada on the use of social media in public health and emergency management.
Also, that’s not him at the top of the page.
