Media Relations

How We Can Help

The Office of Marketing and Communications is dedicated to sharing the newsworthy developments at SIU Medicine. We strive to deliver timely and topical content to journalists and to provide expert interviews and photographs for stories on medicine, medical research and medical education. The office can offer supplemental background information, provide timely access to experts and suggest additional sources for your story.

Guests must obtain permission from the Office of Communication and Marketing prior to any filming or recording on SIU Medicine grounds. Photographs of the medical center and educational facilities are not permitted without prior authorization. Once permission has been granted, a representative from our office will make any necessary arrangements with campus security, provide directions and parking information and escort campus guests.

To best help us accommodate your media requests, contact the office as early as possible. We understand deadlines are often tight, and we will make every effort to get you the information and experts you need. To arrange an interview or request information, please call our office at 217.545.2155 or email the Office of Marketing & Communications.
