CPM Communications & Marketing

Share your news with CPM! 

Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine (CPM) is proud and eager to keep up with the recent news of its alumni, faculty and students. The CPM Office of Communications & Marketing invites you to reach out with information regarding your recent research, achievements and recognitions. While CPM cannot guarantee coverage of every story, it will assess the applicability and relevance to distribute news releases through the appropriate communication vehicle(s).

News can be shared with the University, and with the greater podiatric medical community in various outlets, with the style of information generally dictating which communication vehicle is best. Please familiarize yourself with the available communication vehicles and processes in place prior to submitting your request. 

Questions regarding CPM news and communications can be directed to Madalynne Stanic Fitzgerald, Marketing, Communications & Public Relations Manager at mstanic2@kent.edu
