Welcome to the Marklund Media Relations page. As a representative of the media, you are a key partner in helping us tell our story and inform the community about the important news and services related to caring for those with developmental disabilities.

It is our number one priority to assist you in gathering data and setting interviews to ensure you get the story you hoped for.

For media inquiries, contact Dawn Lassiter-Brueske, Director of Marketing and Communication, at 630-593-5467.


Markund media policies:

No client or staff member may be interviewed or photographed without permission of the Director of Marketing or a representative of the Marketing Department.

Due to respect for our clients and following HIPAA regulations, it is the policy of this organization not to publicize the last names of our clients or students. We therefore refer to them in all publications or media situations as their first name and last initial or simply by first name.
