Mar. 9 luncheon “How to Land Coverage with National Healthcare Media”

Date: March 09, 2016

Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

There’s noth­ing quite like telling your boss “The Today Show is coming.”

National media puts a hos­pi­tal, med­ical or health­care client on the map in a huge way, with a good place­ment reach­ing mil­lions of peo­ple in sec­onds. How­ever reporters and edi­tors are busier than ever and that’s espe­cially true for top tier out­lets. But the truth is, you don’t need to be a huge aca­d­e­mic med­ical cen­ter to attract national media atten­tion. All you need is a great story, a com­pelling hook, cred­i­bil­ity and the con­tacts to make it happen.

Here’s a chance to hear from those con­tacts. On March 9, a panel of national media experts will explain what makes a good health­care story, trends they are look­ing to cover and how pub­lic rela­tions pro­fes­sion­als can get their sto­ries on air, online or in print.

Pan­elists include:

  • Stephanie Siegel, NBC Today Show producer
  • Char­lie Brooks, pro­ducer for CBS Evening News, CBS This Morn­ing and CBS Sun­day Morning.
  • Vikki Ortiz Healy, Chicago Tri­bune health and fam­ily reporter                                     
  • Aurora Aguilar, Mod­ern Health­care news editor
  • Jes­sica Sanchez, Ivan­hoe Pro­duc­tions super­vis­ing producer
  • Mod­er­a­tor: Nesita Kwan , for­mer NBC-TV health reporter
