Communications - Media Relations

"Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." 

Rudyard Kipling

You have stories to tell. We want to tell them. The Marketing and Communications office is here for you, and can provide assistance and support for any media relations activities, requests or inquiries.

Located in the new Medical Education Centre, Virginia Middleton and Michelle Osmond are your go-to people when it comes to all things media-related.

Whether the media has come to you for information, or you want to bring information to the media or to us, Virginia and Michelle can help. They are experts in media-training, and will ensure that you have all the tools you need to enable you to reach your ideal target audience.

Our faculty, staff and students are an important part of our mission to enhance the health of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador. We have research that is making a difference, and from that, we're building a healthy tomorrow. 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 and Michelle can partner with you to get the best outcomes through media planning and developing strategies that will help leverage the information’s potential. They can also provide support in key message development and interview preparation.

As the great Ferris Buller once said, “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” So stop, take a minute, and have a look at our social media page. 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 or MIchelle will allow them to keep a look out for your article or interview, or help with any media-related inquiries you may have.
