The Duke Health Office of News and Communications is dedicated to providing the media with the latest news from Duke Health. Media relations officers are committed to responding quickly and efficiently to media inquiries and facilitating interviews with nationally respected experts in virtually every area of medicine.

Through our conveniently located TV studio, we are capable of facilitating live broadcast interviews in High Definition or Standard Definition, using either a bench research or medical library set. We can also do live-to-tape interviews in HD or SD, as well as videotape feeds. Our studio signal can be sent anywhere via conventional downlink or via Vyvx. Our in-house TV news producer shoots B-roll and field-produces interviews for local, regional, and national news operations.
