Government Relations


This office serves as the medical school's point of contact for interaction with public officials. The office also monitors and responds to legislative issues that impact the medical school as well as serve as a resource for the medical school community on governmental issues.

We strongly encourage faculty and staff to consult with the Office of Community and Government Relations prior to initiating contact with federal, state, or local elected officials and to report such advocacy activities to us.
