Press Release

Press releases should promote WSU College of Medicine accomplishments, support the college brand and elevate the college’s profile. Press releases should be of interest to general audiences outside the WSU community. Writers should indicate clearly that an item is intended for external distribution to media outlets and describe why it would be of interest to a general audience. The communications team will provide guidance on whether information is better suited as an external press release or a WSU Insider story.

The Communications and Marketing team partners with the central News and Media Relations team to prepare and distribute press releases.
