News Room

Advancement and Engagement

Welcome to UNR Med's News Room geared to assist the news media with story development and information. You will find School of Medicine news and events page to access news releases, announcements and publications. We use Flickr to house our photography assets. Boilerplate language and additional resources, including downloadable logos, can be found in our Brand Toolkit. For specific inquiries, including subject matter experts, please contact Julie Ardito or Tessa Bowen.

News and Story Submissions

As storytellers, we're always looking for great content. If you have a UNR Med story idea, please send it our way via our Project Request Form. And if your department was recently in the news, please send a link to Tessa Bowen for inclusion on our Nevada Front Page.

If you're looking to reach a internal and external outlets with your news, we have a variety of ways you can do that:

Internal Outlets

Sometimes a story is best told to the people who know us best. Nevada Medicine Weekly is an e-newsletter sent each week to School of Medicine faculty, staff and partners. VISIX video boards, which are located throughout medical school campus buildings, and emails are also considered internal vehicles.  

External Outlets

When a story makes sense for a broader audience, we're happy to circulate it externally. External news outlets include Synapse magazine, Inside Nevada Medicine, a monthly e-newsletter and social media channels like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. We may also choose to issue a news release to the media.  

Specialty Outlets

Some programs create and distribute their own publications, including the Great Basin History of Medicine Program, the Office of Admissions and Student Affairs, the Office for Community Faculty, the Office of Graduate Medical Education, the Savitt Medical Library. Please contact these programs directly to request inclusion in their newsletters.

School of Medicine Calendar

School of Medicine Calendar
