In business and in life, change is good. Those who embrace it typically come out in a better place.  That can be in personal or professional development.

Freelancer Benefits of Healthcare Content Writing

Write it and they will come. In our attention-deficit driven society, medical freelancers may write off (no pun intended) a content strategy.

Flashing across the bottom of the screen the headline read, “Healthcare workers refuse vaccine.” The comment section was quickly filled with angry comments.  How could they have the audacity to endanger an already vulnerable nation?

Why Revoking Medical Licenses Is Foolish

“You can either start on treatment A or treatment A, your choice.” A bit confused, the patient studied both options long enough to realize they were exactly the same.

What Constitutes Medical Misinformation?

“I’d love to believe you doc, but Facebook hasn’t fact checked whether or not I should.” Okay I’ll admit it.  This scenario never happened.   But it is meant to highlight a growing confusion over what medical information to believe.
