Community Power & Health
Medical Editing & Publishing

Examples of my work

Since 2013, I have examined the realities of bridging the health sector and communities. It is fuelled by the insight that health care in high-income countries is increasingly unsustainable because medicine and public health fail to appreciate how people understand their health.

Through my work, I have come to see that community power is fundamental to the future of health and the health sector.

As an independent scholar and writer, I fund my work through consulting and speaking. My consulting is not only in community power and health but also in medical editing and publishing. I previously worked as an editor and/or publisher at TEDMED, Map of Medicine, F1000, BioMed Central and The BMJ.
