Office of Marketing & Communications

Public Relations & Media Relations

The Office of Marketing and Communication works with UMKC’s public relations department to share stories about our faculty, students, alumni and programs at the School of Medicine. Our editors will work with individuals to draft releases to send to university public relations. UMKC’s PR department works with outside media to promote the story ideas from all the schools on campus.

The Office also helps university PR find expert speakers and story sources for media that plan to publish a story on a medical topic.

If you wish to be on our media expert list or have a story idea for a media release,

please email the Office or call Kelly Edwards at 816-235-1835.
