The Office of Communications is dedicated to sharing Stanford Health Care and School of Medicine news with the media and helping journalists secure expert interviews for their stories.
Contacting our office as early as possible will allow us to better meet media requests. But, when deadlines are tight, we will make every effort to get you the information and experts you need.
Please call or contact specific representatives for media inquiries. During off-hours, the on-call representative for the School of Medicine, who can handle research-related requests, can be reached by pager at (650) 723-8222, pager ID 25314. For Stanford Health Care, the on-call representative can be reached by pager (650) 723-8222, pager #15226.
Our group can offer supplemental background, provide timely access to researchers, physicians or faculty members and suggest additional sources if your first choice is unavailable. Contact Julie Greicius or Becky Bach to schedule interviews and other deadline-related needs.
