Winding down in San Francisco

So, it looks like #MedComms Day 2019 is winding down quickly now. Before he went on holiday, our regular west coast contributor, Tim Collinson, Business Unit Head, West Coast, Fishawack Group, prepared a short message for us to make sure we ended the day in the right place and on time! Thanks, Tim.

Hello from the world’s largest life sciences cluster (according to the California Life Sciences Association)!  I’m enjoying a week’s break from my busy #MedComms role in the San Francisco Bay Area (pre-writing this message so that I can enjoy the offline great outdoors).  A wonderful team at Fishawack means reliable cover for each other when we want to recharge our batteries.  And this week’s battery charging will be the energy for next week’s UC San Diego Extension’s ‘Expert Strategies and Skills for Medical and Scientific Communication’ Professional Workshop – a gathering I’m looking forward to, where I’ll be participating in a panel discussion with some friendly familiar faces and experts from California biotech, academia and agency, on trending topics in medical and scientific communication.  Before long it’ll be the 2nd annual ISMPP West meeting too – preparations already underway in earnest for that.  Best wishes for the last hours of MedComms Day, everyone!
