WASHINGTON, D.C.—Spectrum Science Public Relations, one of the nation’s leading independent healthcare PR specialists, has expanded its public affairs capabilities with the promotion of Bonnie Muheim to senior vice president and the hiring of Patrick Brady and Claire Barnard as account supervisors. Over the past six months the team has doubled in size, bringing the total to nine staff members who specialize in providing clients with strategies and effective communications techniques to achieve their healthcare public policy goals on national, state and local levels.
Bonnie Muheim has more than 20 years experience in public relations and public affairs and has handled health and environmental issues on the federal, state and local levels.
Brady brings more than ten years of public affairs experience to Spectrum, joining the firm after serving as executive director of Citizens For Long Term Care. Barnard has 15 years political and federal government experience and joins Spectrum from Capitol Hill, where she worked as a senior staff advisor for Senator Susan Collins (R-ME).
Says Spectrum founder and president John Seng, “Over the past year, there have been unprecedented changes in national healthcare policy with the passage of the Medicare Modernization Act. We anticipate that the new law is merely the beginning of policy changes that will have tremendous implications for health care providers. Spectrum has always been a service-oriented firm and our newly enhanced public affairs practice continues to ensure that our clients’ messages are being heard.”
