Director of Communications
Nicolas Ferreyros is an experienced communications counselor and strategist with nearly 10 years of experience in public relations. He is responsible for all internal and external communications activities at COA, including media relations, policy communications, and digital strategy.
Nick understands the people, policies, and processes that affect America’s healthcare system and how to communicate about them effectively. He has a knack for translating the “wonkery” of science and policy into plain language and concepts that people care about. This has included supporting campaigns to engage patients to be more active participants in their care, improving all levels of the delivery system, managing complex media crises, and advocating for Medicare policy change.
Prior to joining COA, Nick was a managing supervisor at GYMR Public Relations, a Washington, DC communications firm specializing in healthcare, science and social issues. While there, he oversaw high-profile, award-winning campaigns for clients including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, American Board of Internal Medicine and numerous federal agencies.
A native of Houston, Texas, Nick holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from McGill University in Montreal, Canada.
