The Newsroom is the source for media looking for information about UHN or trying to connect with one
of our experts for an interview. It's also the place to find UHN media policies and catch up on our news stories, videos, media releases,
podcasts and more.
Member of the media? Here’s what you need to know about working with UHN.
We liaise with media to highlight UHN-led initiatives and research and work to identify experts to comment on health stories of the day. Our first priority is to accommodate news media covering stories directly related to UHN activities and patient care. All other requests are considered on an individual basis, with patients and staff in mind.
If you know who you would like to speak to, please contact the
Public Affairs representative at the hospital where the expert is located. They will assist you in promptly booking and facilitating an interview request.
If you don’t have a specific expert in mind, contact the
Public Affairs representative for the site or specialty you are interested in. He or she can help recommend an appropriate spokesperson for you.
