Meet the Media: Healthcare Media

The healthcare media landscape moves at a rapid pace as promising medical treatments and new drug developments occur around the globe. Healthcare journalists often produce multiple stories per day on a very tight timeline. Given the speed at which these beat reporters move, reporters are flooded with pitches every day and have a long list screening methods of potential stories.

Join us for our Meet the Media: Healthcare event that will guide PR professionals in:

  • Making sure pitches stand out in a time-sensitive and competitive area
  • Understanding the distinctions between the different beats and areas of demand 
  • New tips on building win/win relationships with reporters, versus other verticals
  • Reporters' preferred methods for receiving pitches and ongoing communication
  • Positioning yourself or platform as expert sources
