Media Relations Contacts

If you'd like to film news footage at the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center (JCCC), including lab, clinic, b-roll, patient treatments or doctor interviews, you'll need to work with our Media Relations Office. Staff names, contact information and specific areas of expertise appear below.

Our staff can arrange your visit, provide parking and directions, coordinate an appropriate shooting location and supervise the filming to ensure the privacy of patients using our facilities. We can also locate doctors quickly to ensure you get the right expert to answer your media inquiries.

Our team is available to assist with cancer-related news inquiries only involving JCCC and our supporting clinical care locations, senior leadership, research scientists and clinicians, patients, and programs and services. For assistance with media inquiries involving non-cancer-specific health topics, please visit the UCLA Health Sciences Media Relations Directory.

Please note that our media relations officers are unable to respond to medical questions from the general public. For more information about UCLA cancer care or help choosing a UCLA physician, please visit our Receiving Clinical Care section or call the UCLA Cancer Hotline at 888-ONC-UCLA (888-662-8252).
