The UMass Medical School community is filled with remarkable people and research, innovative teaching and education, and meaningful connections to our neighboring communities. These are the stories we want to tell through UMassMedNow and the glossy semiannual magazine, Vitae, as well as in external news outlets.
If a subject, person, program or event interests you, it will likely appeal to other members of the Medical School community, and could be suitable for inclusion on UMassMedNow or Vitae. When determining the media significance of a story idea, our media relations experts consider the geographic reach and significance the story has for the general public.
Some questions we might ask include:
Anyone in the Medical School community with an idea, event or research that has the makings of a good story should contact the Office of Communications. Send a brief e-mail that describes the story and its significance in easily understood language to UMMSCommunications@umassmed.edu. After reviewing the information, a staff member will respond to discuss and/or request more information.
