About Debra Gordon
I am an award-winning medical writer with more than 25 year’s experience. After earning a bachelor of arts in English from the University of Virginia, I spent much of my early career working for newspapers. Early on, I developed a fascination with health and medicine, whether following a woman with lung cancer into the operating room or reporting on the changing healthcare system.
In 2000, I struck out on my own to become an independent medical writer and have never looked back.
Since then, I earned a master of science in Biomedical Writing from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia. I make it a point to remain current on all Food and Drug Administration guidelines regarding pharmaceutical and medical device promotion and publicity, as well AACME guidelines for CME programs. In addition, I am a member of the Association of Healthcare Journalists, where I serve as the subject matter lead for the Health Information Technology (HIT) core topic.
One of my main strengths is my wide knowledge of numerous therapeutic areas. Another is my ability to write for all audiences – consumer/patient, business-to-business, and clinicians. And don’t forget my in-depth knowledge of healthcare policy and the US healthcare system. In addition, my journalism background makes me the perfect choice when you need someone to cover and report on meetings or ad boards, provide market analysis, or develop white papers.
I can’t wait to work with you!
