EMWA Ambassador Programme updates
The EMWA Ambassador Programme is continuing its efforts to reach out to new audiences to promote medical writing and EMWA.
On 11 June, Sally Hill gave an introduction to medical writing and EMWA for a group of 18 translators, interpreters, editors and copywriters in Utrecht. These language experts were attending a workshop organized by SENSE, the Society of English-language professionals in the Netherlands. Like EMWA, SENSE has special interest groups (SIGs) and the full-day workshop on medical translation, medical editing, and medical writing was organized by the SENSE Medical SIG. Some attendees were old hands while others were at the early stages of their careers. Several expressed an interest in EMWA, and one medical editor based in Germany has already become an EMWA member!
On 19 September, Sarah Choudhury will represent EMWA at the Network Pharma Medcomms Career Event at the at the Radisson Hotel & Conference Centre at London Heathrow. Around 400 participants including employers from Medcomms agencies and new comers seeking career information are expected. If you have medical writing experience in either MedComms or HEOR/market access and would like to serve as a panel discussion moderator or if you would like to volunteer to help man the EMWA exhibitor table at this event please contact Abe Shevack (firstname.lastname@example.org).
In October 2022, Beatrix Doerr will present an online webinar in German to young scientists who are members of the German Association for Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Medical Informatics (GMDS). The topic and date of the webinar will be announced.
If you are an experienced medical writer and EMWA volunteer and are interested in becoming an EMWA Ambassador or if you know of any upcoming career events in your locality please contact Abe Shevack (email@example.com).
