Engage the media

  • Talk with your organization's media relations/communications office to learn how they can help you reach out to members of the media. Volunteer to be a spokesperson on your area of expertise.
  • Contact reporters who cover research and related issues and suggest new sources or story ideas they might consider
  • Write a letter to the editor expressing your viewpoint-positive or negative-of a story about research you read; be brief and use examples and poll data.
