Hello, and welcome! I’m Michelle Guillemard, and I created Health Writer Hub to help you write high-quality, life-changing health content.
I teach people from all over the world who are looking for guidance, skill development and an understanding of the vast career options in health communication.
Over the years, I’ve taught hundreds of students about health writing and freelance writing. One in every four of those students takes a second course with me. And, at last count, Health Writer Hub students represented 37 countries!
People who sign up to a Health Writer Hub course are aspiring writers, health professionals, scientists, academics and writers looking to transition.
They’re writers who want to work full-time, part-time, in addition to clinical work and around family commitments.
Also, importantly, the people who take my courses care about writing life-changing, best-practice health content.
If you’re driven by the desire to play a role in helping to improve health outcomes and make a real difference in people’s lives, you’re in the right place.
Health Writer Hub has one mission: enhance the quality of the world’s health content to create better health outcomes and change lives. That’s the underlying principle of all my health writing courses.
As your health writing teacher, I give you tools and resources to empower you – so you can use your skills and experience to write high-quality health content and build a successful writing career.

Take a look at my blog about health & medical writing.
I have worked as a health & medical writer for more than a decade. (You can read about my work history and qualifications on my LinkedIn profile – and, while you’re there, please feel free to connect with me.)
While I teach at Health Writer Hub, I continue to freelance for my clients. That’s because I don’t feel that I can teach you how to write well and freelance effectively if I’m not active in the industry myself. I am a true advocate of the freelance life and all it offers (spoiler alert: it’s a pretty fantastic lifestyle!).
As well as writing and teaching my passion here at Health Writer Hub, I’m currently serving my third year as President of the Australasian Medical Writers Association. I also contribute to the European Medical Writers Association Journal.
I founded Health Writer Hub because I care about helping you inspire change through effective health communication.
I collect best-practice advice based on the latest health communication research to help us all write high-quality health content.
For me, health writing is about producing content that’s clear, engaging, convincing, and trustworthy.
I believe that, as health writers, we have a responsibility to promote adherence, foster knowledge growth, inspire behaviour change and, ultimately, create better health outcomes.
If we continue to enhance the quality of our content, we can help to improve global health standards and change lives.
That’s where I’m coming from, and that’s what I hope you get out of being a part of my little corner of the web.
Here are the principles that guide my work here at Health Writer Hub.
1. To support you as you navigate your health writing journey.
I recognise your journey is unique. You might be looking for health writing advice or hoping to learn more about consumer health writing.
You could be interested in pursuing freelancing or opportunities for industry-specific networking and career growth. I appreciate your aims and objectives are different to everyone else’s.
2. To help you improve the quality of your writing.
Health writing isn’t easy – it involves making sense of scientific and medical concepts then translating those messages to the right audience in the best way.
As a health writer, you care about inspiring your readers and enhancing their health knowledge. By improving the quality of your writing, you’ll be enabling and empowering your readers to make informed choices about their health.
I care about helping you take your writing from good to life-changing – so you can encourage positive change.
3. To help you grow your career.
If you create health and medical content – everything from articles to blogs, marketing content, patient handouts, social media, eBooks, video content and more – your learning is never done.
Whether you’re relatively new or have twenty years of experience under your belt, constant learning is the only way you can stay up-to-date with your profession and give yourself opportunities for career growth.
4. To help you create better health outcomes.
I believe high-quality health writing has the power to improve health outcomes, motivate people to take control of their health, and change lives.
So, what do you say – are you ready to enhance your skills and grow your health writing career with me?
