Many UCLA faculty experts are available for media interviews. The UCLA Media Relations team can help to identify the best sources for your stories about UCLA patient care, research and education. We also can help you find expert comment for breaking medical, science and health policy stories. The team has access to pager numbers, cell phones and assistants to help you reach the right people when you are on tight deadlines. Media relations officers also can provide complete logistical support for broadcast and photography shoots, and serve as field producers for video or radio interviews, and for video B-roll and photographs.
Use the online staff directory to contact individual media relations officers directly by e-mail or phone.
