MEDIA SERVICES AT UCLA FSPH

Media Inquiries

The Office of Communications works with journalists on both short and long lead times. Members of the media are encouraged to contact us for referrals to public health experts.

All journalists and other external parties must gain written permission from FSPH's Office of Communications in advance of photographing or filming at the Fielding School.

Press Releases

When FSPH faculty receive notification of an upcoming journal publication that is likely to generate public interest, contact the Office of Communications. It is important to be in touch early in the process to allow sufficient time to assess and strategize.

Media Trainings

The Office of Communications offers formal and informal media training sessions during the academic year. Learn how to work with reporters and get tips for sharing research with a broad audience. Contact us for information about the next training session or to receive our Media Tip Sheet. 


PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEOGRAPHY AT UCLA FSPH

FSPH students, faculty and staff are subject to their image being captured via photography or videography while attending standard activities at FSPH and at UCLA FSPH events. The aforementioned may be used for promotion and publicity of the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health without compensation or credit. 

FSPH's Office of Communications must be contacted before any photography or videography project on behalf of the school is scheduled, onsite or offsite. Permits, release forms and other notifications are often required. Please find current individual release forms for adults in English, adults in Spanish, minors in English and minors in Spanish, but ensure that proper permissions are obtained in advance, through the Office of Communications.

The Office of Communications can be contacted with requests for image searches in the FSPH media database as well as copyright information.
