Communication networks in action

UNR Med Wants to Hear From You! 

With the help of students from the Reynolds School of Journalism, we are exploring how the School of Medicine communicates with our faculty and staff in new and effective ways. We welcome your input on a brief, 13-question survey. All responses will remain anonymous.

Our student "agency" will present their communication recommendations May 11 at 8 a.m. at the Reynolds School of Journalism. If you'd like to attend the presentation or have questions about the survey, please contact Carolyn Brayko,, or Christy Jerz,

Thank you for your feedback which will help the School of Medicine to better communicate with you.
