CSG Leverages Public Relations To Elevate A Leading Health Sciences Institution

Solving for USAHS’ Why

  • Attract prospective students and boost enrollment
  • Raise the influx of faculty and staff
  • Form new partnerships with clinical partners

USAHS Surges Into the Media Spotlight

CSG’s education industry experts recognized the wealth of distinctive expertise living within the walls of USAHS in the form of faculty members who were also working professionals and consistently demonstrating their expertise through research and other contributions in their respective fields. It’s with this recognition that CSG activated USAHS faculty members to serve as a megaphone for expressing the value that the university offers to students, communities and the healthcare industry.
