Contact the Office of Communications

UPMC CancerCenter and the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI) Office of Communications and Public Affairs is split into two entities to oversee interactions and activities with the community and to increase awareness of UPMC CancerCenter's clinical care programs and UPCI's novel programs in cancer research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, education, and patient care.

The Office of Communication centers around UPMC CancerCenter's clinical care programs and the community, while the Office of Government Regulations advances the research interests of UPCI with government leaders and state and federal policymakers. Both offices serve as an administrative liaison to the UPMC Government Relations and Corporate Communications departments.
