A health and medical news fanatic, I bring vast experience to the art of understanding and filtering this information for thoughtful readers. I write for physician audiences wherever they are—mobile, Web, and even--gasp!--print. My repertoire includes professional promotional tactics, medical news, speaker series, Web sites, mobile products, banners, and CME activity.
A particular strength: my ability to speak to professional and lay audiences with clarity, ease, and succinctness. I have contributed health-related features to the Johns Hopkins White Papers, Barron’s, Ode, and Real Simple.
I’ve been a blogger since 2003, primarily in health-related areas, but also covering environmental and conservation issues for a social media site of recreational anglers and hunter with nearly 200,000 Facebook fans.
I am constantly searching for writing or editorial projects to which I can bring my fascination and deep experience in these fields to a large professional or consumer audience.
