INFORMATION FOR THE MEDIA

Hello there and thanks for looking me up!

I’m always excited to be talking about the world of germs but over the last few years, that has expanded into numerous areas.  So, if you are looking for someone to talk about the following:

  • Germs in General
  • Pathogens including foodborne, waterborne, bloodblorne, vector borne, epidemic and pandemic diseases
  • Immunology (especially inflammation)
  • Nutrition and Diet
  • The Microbiome
  • Cleaning and Disinfection
  • Hand Hygiene
  • Sequelae of germs including chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and psychological disorders
  • Antibiotics and resistance
  • Social marketing for health
  • Knowledge Translation

…then I would be more than happy to discuss with your organization any topics that are your focus of stories, reports, and series.

There are many ways to contact me although the easiest is to send me an Email to my Germ Guy account.  You can do so by simply clicking below:

TheGermGuy@gmail.com

You can also reach me through Twitter – I may not reply as quickly but I’m always checking.  I’m at:

@JATetro

If you are on a deadline (like most media these days) you can quickly reach me on my cell:

+1-647-964-GERM
(+1-647-964-4376)

If you’re looking for a photo of me, I’m sure that there are more than a few you could find by doing a simple Google Image Search.  However, you can also choose from these great shots from some of Ottawa’s best photographers.
