Rob and Trina were recognized for responding to 498 media inquiries in the past year to schedule interviews with faculty and students on a wide range of topics. They also wrote and posted more than 200 stories and press releases, using social media to further distribute the information. According to Rob and Trina’s nominators, “the volume of media inquiries and resulting number of stories in the popular press and veterinary and animal health trade publications has been the major accomplishment of the communications team. These efforts have produced ripple effects for our development success, increased clinical caseload, expanded clinical trials, faculty and student recruitment efforts, and reputation enhancement.”
