Public relations and marketing communications


The mission of the Communications Office is to develop and execute integrated, effective internal and external mass communications to grow and protect VCU Massey Cancer Center's brand, support the cancer center's research, education and clinical goals and maximize philanthropic support by communicating Massey’s impact. Our services include promoting cancer research, training and educational programs; funding opportunities; faculty awards and honors; and events. We also partner with the VCU Health marketing department to market and advertise clinical oncology services, support community outreach and conduct market research. We develop and maintain Massey’s website, manage Massey’s brand and social media, liaise with the press and secure positive press coverage, oversee issues management and executive communications,  and develop printed collateral, newsletters and e-communications. More information about our services is available on the Communications resources for Massey staff page.
