Dr. Philip Huang ticks all the boxes for a big-city public health administrator: advanced degree from Harvard; stint with the CDC; veteran of the AIDS and Big Tobacco wars; accomplished musician and amateur magician.

 

Laugh if you will, but the Lake Highlands High School graduate who returned a year ago to lead Dallas County Health and Human Services Department said the ability to connect with an audience is crucial to his job -- especially in the face of COVID-19’s scourge.

 

“I think magic actually helped me -- performing helped me understand how to communicate and simplify things.”


Huang’s admirers -- and there are many -- say his mix of scientific acumen, dedication, steadiness and love for the city where he grew up is just what the doctor ordered.

 

“I cannot imagine where I would be if he wasn’t there,” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins.

 

“He came from Austin and has worked for the CDC and other organizations. But people forget that he’s a Lake Highlands Wildcat. He grew up here, he loves this place. He really cares about Dallas County.”
