 A Working Partnership

Wake Forest Baptist’s media relations team does its best to help members of the news media get the information they need to prepare their content. 

The following beat areas are managed by specific staff members who can reach the media experts you need to interview about the subject. If you are unsure who to speak with, please contact either Marguerite Beck or Mac Ingraham at 336-716-4587. We look forward to working with you.
