Events

Increase your event attendance by publicizing through our communications vehicles - such as social media platforms, the infocaster TV screen in the BMH lobby, and the Applied Health Sciences home page.

We can also submit Applied Health Sciences events for consideration in centrally-produced communications including the Waterloo Events calendar, the Daily Bulletin and if appropriate, the Waterloo Magazine.

Send an email to Michelle Douglas-Mills briefly describing your event.

News or stories

Share your news or stories with your target audience - whether that is students, staff or the general public. We can help you identify your audience, draft stories, and develop strategies to spread the word.

Email the Manager, Marketing and Communications to discuss your news or stories.

Research

Think your research would make an interesting news story for the general public? From drafting press releases to pitching research to the media, we can help generate interest in your work. Contact the Manager, Marketing and Communications to learn about media outreach opportunities.

Promotional material

We can assist with a variety of special communications projects, including consulting on:

  • event flyers and posters
  • promotional items (e.g., zap banners, Tshirts, giveaways)
  • written promotional pieces such as brochures or advertising
  • the Faculty's visual identity and positioning, including direction on use of university wordmarks, colour palette, terminology etc.

Contact the Manager, Marketing and Communications for more information.

Media training

We offer media training and interview rehearsals on a request basis. Email the Manager, Marketing and Communications to book an appointment.

I’ve been contacted by the media. Now what?
