This just in from Nwoza Eshun, Associate Medical Writer at inScience Communications.
My day started with a series of early morning teleconferences, as my clients are based in Asia with a significant time gap. I really enjoy the author calls as it’s a great way to capture what they want to embody in their manuscript, and the conversation can make for a refreshing change to communicating via email.
My workload is very varied and interesting, with no two projects being the same. I am currently working on a manuscript which will communicate the findings from a vaccine developed for a neglected tropical disease. Last week however I was assembling safety slide decks for a drug to be used to educate healthcare professionals at a conference. One of the biggest assets of the structure of our team at inScience Communications, is the availability of support. As an Associate Medical Writer the opportunity to learn on the job is a great way to get practical experience, develop your own style, and a natural confidence booster.
At about 12.30pm we gathered for lunch in the games room to let off steam with games of Foosball and Ping-Pong. It’s nice to gather as a team at lunch time – it builds camaraderie, and contagious laughter at lunch time is good for the soul. On the few occasions when the weather is good in London, I take myself for a walk by Regent’s Canal, which you can see from the office window. It’s such a beautiful tranquil place and its nice be surrounded by calm in such a wonderful bustling city. It’s a great lunchtime escape.
With external meetings out of the way, the afternoon gave me an opportunity to focus on completing work for my ongoing projects. Happily, it’s now time to wind down and finish up before heading home, unless of course there’s an impromptu meet up after work with colleagues, which is a great way to unwind on a summer’s evening with an array of interesting spots to choose from in nearby in St. Pancras.
