Historical Note

Medical Center Public Relations at The George Washington University became the Medical Center Office of Communications and Marketing, circa 1999. It was previously known as the Department of Marketing and Public Relations (c.1994-99) and before that the Office of Public Relations. It publishes "Progress" (1989-Present), which evolved from the "Friday Report" (1970-89), and "GW Health and Medicine magazine" (1965-Present). The Director of Medical Center Public Relations reports to the Director of the Medical Center. The office also maintains publicity files on staff and faculty.
