There are countless stories in the U-M Health System, and the Public Relations team is here to tell them.
We're the ones who translate the latest U-M Health System research findings into plain English that the everyday person can understand – and that the news media can cover. For more, see our Newsroom.
We're the source of stories about unique individuals and teams across the Medical School and Hospitals and Health Centers who are making a difference – and whose achievements can help inspire others. For more, see the Inside View newsletter.
We're the ones who help get the word out, both to our own institution and to the public, about important issues and events. For more, see the "carousel" of news on our Internal Home Page, as well as the Health System Headlines.
We're the interface between the news media and the entire Health System, helping reporters find the right experts among our faculty and staff, helping those faculty and staff prepare for their encounters with the press, helping patients tell their stories through the media, and keeping a close eye on where U-M Health System people and programs are being mentioned in the news. For more, see our page for reporters, and the M News Now page.
We're always looking for new ways to tell those stories to more people, whether it's through videos that we post on our YouTube channel, items we post on our Twitter stream or podcasts we make available through the Web and iTunes. We're also reaching out to Spanish-language audiences and media through our Portal en Espanol.
And we're here to help make sure that in a crisis or urgent situation, important information gets out in a timely way to audiences within and beyond our institution. For more, see our crisis communication page.
In short, we're here to share some of the million stories that make the U-M Health System such an amazing place.
