The Department of Epidemiology was eager to offer a fresh contribution to the field by conveying the real world relevance of this discipline with its yearly annual report. For the report, we focused on the research contributions of faculty and related media coverage. I was writer and managing and content editor and worked closely with a graphic designer and leadership to establish the clean look of the department.
The Department of Epidemiology wanted to not only publicize its research to a wide audience but to show how this field was making an impact. Our bimonthly newsletter, 2x2, turned into a quarterly magazine, with journalistic-style features on everything from the vaccine controversy to the public health problem created by a gambling economy. I wrote for and edited the content of the magazine and worked closely with a graphic designer and leadership to establish the clean look of this publication. This work expanded into the 2x2 project, a public health news website that I worked on with faculty, staff, and students in the department.
I wrote copy and managed email marketing of the Department of Epidemiology’s new Executive MS degree program for health professionals, as well as the department’s new summer institute. Both programs increased their numbers significantly each year.
