We’re focusing on older adults with this healthy aging health writing challenge. The challenge focuses on age-related illnesses and terminology, as well as healthy lifestyle tips.
With our aging population, it’s important for all medical writers to know and write about these issues.
Aim to complete one challenge a day every day for 30 days. Every little bit of writing helps!
