The public relations and communications office is responsible for keeping the public informed about scientific and medical progress at the UC Academic Health Center. In doing so, our team serves as a link between UC faculty and staff and local and national news media.
We strive to be an accurate, comprehensive and authoritative source of health information for print, broadcast and electronic media nationwide. As part of this mission, we respond to requests for experts, background information, educated opinions or a local angle to national news.
All communication with members of the media is coordinated through our office to ensure a prompt, positive response. To reach a member of our team, please call 513-558-4553, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact the appropriate team member listed below.
