Media Visitation Policy:
Journalists are welcome on the campus of Moffitt Cancer Center. We can host individual reporters or crews in any of our clinical or research areas, and assist with coordinating interviews with Moffitt faculty, team members, volunteers and patients.  Journalists must contact a member of our media relations team to arrange a visit. A member of our media team must meet and escort all journalists while on campus.

We have strict rules regarding patient confidentiality. Therefore, we must consent all patients before participating in media interviews.
