The following guidelines can assist you in arranging interviews, video sessions, or photo opportunities with ECHCS newsmakers

  • Call the Public Affairs Office to arrange all interviews with any VA staff member. We will respond as quickly as we can. (Patients seeking medical advice should contact their health care provider or dial 911 for medical emergencies.)
  • Advance notice of on-site interviews is necessary so staff can arrange locations for media interviews or photo shoots and line up appropriate sources for your story.
  • All film crews and photographers must be accompanied while on campus. Our main priority is patient privacy and adherence to HIPPA regulations. We also want to make sure you get the information you are looking for and to coordinate shoot locations and ensure interviews go smoothly.
  • If you are a student working on a research paper and looking to interview a veteran about his military experience, we encourage you to contact a Veterans Service Organization for assistance.  You can find a comprehensive list at  Alternatively, contact the United Veterans committee of Colorado at
