Featuring Karlie Belle Price, Maddie Earnst, Bonnie Harris, Nikky Luna and Maya Tretheway

The most rewarding and challenging part of a career in healthcare communications is that there is life at the other end. The decisions you make and the information you share can bring comfort, evoke action or inspire change that actually affects a person’s livelihood. It’s an important job and it’s in-demand as the nation grapples with a pandemic and an influx of misinformation. Hear from Maya Tretheway, Karlie Belle Price, Maddie Earnst and Nikky Luna about their day-to-day and the importance of healthcare communicators.
