NACCHO Mourns the Loss of Hawaii State Department of Health Director

Washington, DC (December 13) -

NACCHO is saddened by the recent loss of Loretta 'Deliana' Fuddy, ACSW, MPH, director of the Hawaii State Department of Health, who died tragically in a small plane crash on Wednesday, December 11, 2013. Deliana's career in public health and health services spanned more than three decades.  Prior to serving as the director of the Health Department, she was the Chief, Family Health Services Division.  She also served as the president of the Association of State and Territorial Public Health Social Workers and as member of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials Access Policy Committee.

"Deliana was a public health professional of the highest calling. She dedicated her career to protecting and promoting the health, safety, and security of all Hawaiians and her passion was maternal and child health," said NACCHO Executive Director Robert M. Pestronk. "Her commitment and thoughtful leadership has created better opportunities, conditions, and outcomes for women, children, youth, and families and her legacy will inspire the next generation of public health leaders."

Our thoughts and condolences are with Deliana's friends, family, and her colleagues at the Hawaii State Department of Health and nationwide.
