About Me

My Story…

Greetings! Welcome to my site, I am Deidre Sully – an experienced Public Health professional with a career spanning over 15 years. I am a strategic, innovative, and creative thought leader. I have solid expertise in policy and advocacy, coalition building, community education, and stakeholder and influencer engagement. Since I was a teen, Public Health professional has always been a passion of mine since I was a teen. Making sure that the voices in under-served communities are heard in this arena is important to me.

I began my career in research managing a multi-center gastric cancer clinical trial which included several major medical institutions nationwide. In 2017, I stepped into my current role as director of the leading NYC-based tobacco control policy and advocacy program. I drive the program’s strategies and mission to create tobacco-free norms by expanding smoke-free protections for all residents. I have been fortunate in my career to have diverse experiences from being on City and State NY Magazine’s 40 under 40 list (2018), to producing an award-winning documentary, NYCHA Goes Smoke-Free. The film chronicles the New York City Housing Authority’s path to implementing their smoke-free policy.

My passion for reproductive health is demonstrated in my role as Outreach Coordinator for Red Wrap, a community service initiative of ANU Life Global Ministries. Red Wrap provides feminine hygiene supplies to homeless women and liaises with shelters to host events to distribute donations. Meanwhile, over $5,000 in both funds and supplies has been collected for the initiative.

My personal goal is to ensure people have equitable opportunities to achieve and maintain health and wellness. Additionally, I aim to serve as a model for future public health professionals.
