Media Relations - Public Affairs

 

Legislators and key decision-makers pay close attention to public opinion. The news media plays a major role in shaping public opinion. To effectively participate in the legislative process, IAHU must work to educate and inform the news media and the public.

IAHU's Public Affairs program works hand-in-hand with the Legislative Program. The Public Affairs program has several key components:


News Monitoring

IAHU monitors the media outlets in Iowa each day. When stories about health care reform, our industry, or the welfare of our clients run, IAHU and its members are able to quickly respond.


Press Release Distribution

IAHU is able to distribute press releases to almost every meaningful media outlet in the State, including online portals.


Rapid Response Team

IAHU's Communications Team assists with news monitoring, review and editing of press releases, and media responses when needed. Often, media responses are in the form of letters to the editor written over the name of individual Communication Team Members and submission of Op Ed articles.
