WASHINGTON –National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) Executive Director LaMar Hasbrouck, MD, MPH, today announced the appointment of three senior staff members to serve the 2,800 local health departments represented by the association.

  • Dr. William Barnes is NACCHO's new chief program officer. Barnes is a clinical psychologist who has spent the past 15 years treating patients and in executive positions at Children's National Health System, the largest provider of pediatric care in the nation's capital. He has also spent 15 years as a professor of pediatrics at George Washington University and has worked as a consultant to the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and others. Barnes holds a PhD in clinical psychology, along with a master's degree in business administration.
  • David Egner was recently appointed NACCHO's chief of marketing and communications. Egner spent 14 years as a reporter and editor, primarily for The Associated Press in three state capitals. He went on to hold senior communications positions for the lieutenant governor and governor of New York. He later served in the U.S. government with the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Military Health System in the Defense Department. Egner also headed media relations for the RAND Corp. think tank, was a vice president at a crisis communications firm, and ran his own communications consulting business.
  • Dr. Oscar Alleyne is NACCHO's new senior advisor for public health programs. Alleyne spent the past 15 years as director of epidemiology and public health planning for the Rockland County Health Department in New York. He has a long history of service as a chair and subject matter expert on a number of NACCHO workgroups and other public health organizations. He holds a bachelor's degree in biology, a master's degree in public health and a doctorate of public health.

"Each of these talented new employees has a proven track record of success and will strengthen NACCHO and all our members," said Hasbrouck, who came to NACCHO in February from his position as director of the Illinois Department of Public Health. "They join a dedicated NACCHO staff working with officials in local health departments to help the American people lead longer, healthier and more productive lives."
