PK Public Relations helps build constituencies to advance projects and initiatives that serve the public interest. PK Public Relations understands the complex dynamics that are driving rapid changes in water resources, healthcare access and prevention and public education programs. Some issues are expected while others emerge from changing business, community or political conditions. Policy makers, businesses, the media and the public are increasingly interested in these complex issues. Effectively navigating these issues requires a depth of issue understanding and the ability to frame and convey complex communications.
