Our public affairs office can help journalists identify experts and arrange interviews or photos. We can also provide background information or help you develop story ideas about the latest advances in understanding and treating challenges associated with neurodevelopmental disabilities such as autism, ADHD and more.

Find an expert

UC Davis MIND Institute has experts in neurodevelopmental disabilities, such as autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, Down syndrome, and fragile X syndrome.

To find an expert contact the MIND Institute's public information officer.

Arrange an interview or photo shoot

To arrange an interview or photo shoot, please contact the MIND Institute's public information officer. Advance notice is appreciated, and allows us time to obtain media consents from patients where appropriate. To ensure patient confidentiality and privacy, a public affairs staff person is required to accompany reporters, photographers and film crews during their time at the MIND Institute.
