with Scott Coppenbarger, Director of Marketing and Community Relations, OU Medical Center

Scott Coppenbarger

Scott Coppenbarger is director of marketing and community relations at OU Medical Center and The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. Pretty much everything can be explained with a good story. It’s Scott’s approach to marketing and public relations and in all effective communications. It was his bread and butter during 23-years in broadcast journalism and remains essential in his second career in public relations and marketing. From the board room to a team huddle, Scott knows the art of influence is to find agreement between a business goal and an audience it hopes to reach. The best bridge is through effective storytelling and messaging. This philosophy earned Scott several awards along the way, including a prestigious Edward R. Murrow award and kept his wife and two grown kids healthy and satisfied along the way.
