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!

Safi Dale takes a moment on MedComms Day, to reflect on her work experience placement with Nucleus Global.

I finished my A-levels last summer and am looking forward to going to Manchester University in September to study Biochemistry. Taking a year out has been really exciting and a great experience. However, I’ve been very conscious that I didn’t have a clear understanding of the avenues I could pursue after I graduate. So I was excited to arrange work experience at Nucleus Global and see what life is like in medical communications, which I hadn’t previously known much about.

A Prime Global MedComms Day

This in from Kate Shepherd of Prime Global

We posted quotes from our amazing staff and any team events taking place in our global offices. This generated record numbers of impressions and engagement on social media.

Here are some highlights…

Rain doesn’t stop MedComms

The great British weather has been causing some problems today for some. This from Bryce McMurray, Vice President, Global Medical Communications at Springer Healthcare.

Dedication just to get here today! The Chester office of inScience Communications was practically cut off this morning as a month’s rain in 48 hours left the whole area badly flooded. Not to be put off we have a full complement busily working on a large range of projects. We are bringing a couple of new clients on board at the moment and kicking off some interesting infographic projects. Preparation for the meetings season is in full swing too. All of this frenetic activity has led to an afternoon of popcorn gorging!
