Hello, and welcome! I’m Michelle Guillemard, founder of Health Writer Hub.
Established in 2014, Health Writer Hub aims to develop your health communication skills and improve the quality of (the sometimes dubious) health content on the web.
Our health writing courses teach you how to create high-quality, evidence-based, easy-to-understand health content.
Through Health Writer Hub, I’m striving to enhance global health literacy levels and improve health outcomes by empowering writers to create best-practice, life-changing health content.
Passionate about inspiring behaviour change through effective communication, I believe high-quality health writing plays a significant role in creating better public health.
A freelance medical writer based in Sydney, I’m also a University of Melbourne Alumni Mentor and a contributor to the European Medical Writers Association Journal. A keen industry advocate, I was President of the Australasian Medical Writers Association from 2014 to 2019. (Outside of work, I like to run marathons and spend a lot of time in the great outdoors.)

Our Alumni are writers who want to work full-time, part-time, in addition to clinical work and around family commitments.
I’m pleased that our students share my vision: that is, to create quality content that improves health literacy, inspires positive behaviour change and creates better health outcomes.
