Who are great PR people in NYC?

Anyone know of a great PR person in NYC?  We are looking to hire a
consultant (an individual not a firm) on a short-term basis to help get
some messaging out about a product we are developing.  We are building
products (and a platform) related to tracking the spread of illness,
especially flu, and think that it might be a good time to get messaging
out.

Side note:  If folks are passionate about these spaces (mobile health
generally, disease tracking specifically), email me. I am going to try to
pull together a group (or two) and we can perhaps take forward specific
conversations within FounderDating.

Thanks.

Sorry, let me add one more thing: an ideal PR consultant for us would have
experience with US local and state governments given the messaging we are
trying to get out.

You should reach out to Kyle Austin of Beantown Media Ventures. I plan on
