About Debra Gordon
I am an award-winning medical writer with more than 25 years 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 in AACME guidelines for CME programs. In addition, I am a member of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) and am currently enrolled in its certification program.
Today I am comfortable writing within a variety of therapeutic areas. I also have a strong background and understanding of health policy, managed care, healthcare reform, the Affordable Care Act and health system issues. In addition, my journalism background makes me the perfect choice when you need someone to cover medical meetings or ad boards, provide market analysis, and develop white papers.
