Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA)

Cancer Treatment Centers of America | Senior Writer/Content Creator
(Creative Circle Contract)

Boca Raton, Fla. | 2015


As senior writer, content creator at CTCA, I was responsible for writing a variety of patient-centered content for the company site, blog and newsletter. This was my first medical writing contract, and I learned how to quickly research complex subject matter and make it more accessible to cancer patients and their loved ones. I had access to the medical director for my subject matter expert, who ensured my content was accurate and on point.
