As the Faculty of Medicine continues to grow and expand, we want to ensure that faculty and staff are aware of the communication resources available.
Every day our faculty is advancing the study of medicine and health care for communities across Newfoundland and Labrador. With research that makes a difference, it’s important to share information with each other and the general public as we continue to build a healthy tomorrow.
Many of you have worked with Communications Co-ordinator, Sharon Gray
and in September 2010, Virginia Middleton
joined the Faculty of Medicine as a second co-ordinator on the communications team.
Virginia’s role is to manage communication planning, media relations, crisis communications, and new social media initiatives. Sharon will continue focusing on our faculty newsletter, MUNMED as well as other upcoming projects such as the medical school’s 45th anniversary.
There is a high value in sharing research findings, important discoveries and overall information about medicine in Newfoundland and Labrador. The media provides a direct communication link, sharing everything from good news stories to important findings the public should know.
We encourage you to work with the media to share what’s happening within the medical school and your areas of expertise. Virginia can partner with you to get the best outcomes through media planning and developing strategies that will help leverage the information’s potential. She can also provide support in key message development and interview preparation.
In today’s world, news is breaking faster than ever before and we need to be aware of news coverage related to Memorial University’s Faculty of Medicine. A quick call or email to Virginia will give her an opportunity to keep a look out for your article or interview.
