Our Media Relations team

  • We will meet with the study authors to discuss its details and draft the news release.
  • We distribute the release to newspapers, magazines, online publications, television networks, and post it on the Hopkins Children’s site.
  • For a few days before and after the news release’s distribution, the study authors need to be available for media interviews. A few notes:
    • We can help authors prepare for interviews with reporters.
    • We are responsible for escorting all television crews, reporters and photographers while they are on campus.
    • We ask that, during interviews, faculty specifically mention their affiliation with the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
  • If faculty or staff are contacted directly by a reporter, please let us know.
  • Media Training

    We can assist Hopkins Children’s faculty with media training and crisis communications in one-on-one sessions. Advanced seminars with professional trainers can be arranged for a fee.
