The Cabot Primary Care Lecture Series

“Writing for Patients and Consumer Health Publications”

In this age of information overload, it is vital that patients receive accurate and understandable information about healthcare. Dr. Robb-Nicholson and Dr. Simon have extensive experience in the field of medical writing as editors of the Harvard Women's Health Watch and the Harvard Men's Health Watch respectively. They will be discussing how physicians can communicate with patients about medical issues, how to interpret medical research in a way patients understand, and how to successfully balance medical writing with a clinical career.
