Leading strategic communications and government affairs firm The Glover Park Group (GPG) today announced Carolyn Gluck will serve as a senior advisor. Gluck will provide strategic political and legislative counsel on a broad range of issues to the firm’s Health + Wellness practice.

Gluck spent nearly 20 years on Capitol Hill, managing leadership and legislative initiatives and building coalitions and consensus among members and staff in the office of Democratic Leader, Senator Harry Reid. For the past decade, Gluck was Senior Policy Advisor, advising on public health, women’s issues and appropriations.

Gluck helped to pass the first federal law guaranteeing coverage of prescription contraceptives for federal employees, participated in negotiations for the Affordable Care Act, coordinated the campaign to protect access to women’s preventive health care during the Supreme Court’s consideration of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby and secured millions in federal funding for Senator Reid’s public health priorities in Nevada.

“Carolyn has played a pivotal role in negotiating some of the most important health issues before Congress for more than a decade,” said Joel Johnson, Managing Director and head of GPG’s Government Relations practice. “Her depth of knowledge in health care and advancing policy on Capitol Hill is a huge asset and we look forward to the great impact she will have in service of our clients.”

Gluck’s previous roles with Senator Reid’s office included Deputy Legislative Director and Legislative assistant, during which she advised the Senator on all legislative activities related to public health, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, education and women’s issues related to his committee positions with the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee of Labor, Health and Human Services and Education.
