  • About Us

    The Division of Public Affairs is the communications center of the Medical Center. Public Affairs oversees all interactions with the news media and tells the Medical Center story through print and electronic publications for internal and external audiences.

    In addition, Public Affairs provides a variety of services to the Medical Center community, including creative services, publicity for noteworthy activities, tours and event planning. Our children's section provides assistance to community groups wishing to support Batson Children's Hospital.

    Media guidelines and resources

    Members of the professional news media who need assistance covering Medical Center activities should contact the office at (601) 984-1100.

    All media who visit the campus must be accompanied by an escort from Public Affairs.

    A number of resources for the news media, including our press releases, a guide to our expert sources and an image gallery of downloadable photos, are available to the right, under Media Resources.

    Distinct from Public Affairs, the Marketing Department provides branding and creative services to all areas of the Medical Center.
