Berry alumnus combines love for government and public health

Combining two fields of work is something David Bayne (06C) has excelled at with his degrees in government and public health. David was recently named deputy chief of staff at the Georgia Department of Public Health. In this role, he helps oversee the department’s strategic priorities and special projects, manages the Office of Government Relations and represents the department in external affairs with other federal and state agencies.

During David’s time at Berry, his involvement in the Student Government Association and Model United Nations helped prepare him for a variety of experiences. He also developed a passion for helping the under-served by taking advantage of Berry’s service opportunities on and off campus.

“I really do believe that Berry’s unique multi-faceted focus on academics, work and community service set me on a successful path for my career,” he said. “The incredible professors in the Evans School sharpened my critical thinking skills and continuously challenged and expanded my worldview.”
