Our Publications

The AHC Public Relations team coordinates many publications, from press releases and web features to headlines updates and an all-AHC newsletter.


Follow our news site, HealthTalk, for health information, research news, and topical health commentary. Please contact us if you would like information about being featured on HealthTalk.

HealthTalk's content is created by the AHC PR Team, but frequently pieces appearing on other unit websites will be featured with a link to the original piece. We are always looking for more interesting multimedia pieces, including video, photos, and graphics, to tell the interesting stories and successes of the Health Sciences. 

Press releases

These pieces are sent to highlight stories connected to the strategic goals of the University of Minnesota and the Health Sciences, as well as the individual AHC schools and units. These are one part of a larger strategic media outreach plan; if you have a story that may be well suited, please contact your liaison for details on creating media outreach items. 

To receive our press release from around the Health Sciences, please subscribe to the internal communicators mailing list by emailing ahcmedia@umn.edu.
