Media & Communications

Members of the media relations, multimedia and social media teams work closely together to help develop stories and spread the word about Einstein to external and internal audiences.

Media Relations

Media relations is the central point of contact for all of Einstein’s interactions with media, both initiating targeted outreach and coordinating incoming inquiries. For faculty, staff and students, we are available to provide guidance for your interactions with the media. The best way to reach the team is to send an email to sciencenews@einstein.yu.edu. Publicity Guidelines are available online. Media Guidelines are available upon request.

For members of the media, we are happy to connect you to the best expert for your query and expedite any interview requests that you have. You can reach the media relations team via e-mail at sciencenews@einstein.yu.edu. For after-hours emergencies, please call 718.430.3101.

Multimedia

The multimedia team produces video segments about the research and programs at the college as well as profiles of medical students, graduate students and faculty. These segments appear on Einstein’s multimedia page, YouTube channel, Facebook and in the digital version of Einstein’s magazine.

Our team also develops videos for other Einstein departments including Human Resources, Admissions and Development.

Any department considering a video that is intended for the website should write to the email below six months prior to the date of the event or when the video is due in order to ensure that the project can be accommodated. Please note that requests on short notice may be declined because of projects that are already in cue. We will be happy to work with you and provide an estimate of costs. 

All suggestions and requests for video should be directed to notification@einstein.yu.edu, Subject: video.
