SELECTED SAMPLES OF MY WRITING

Excerpts of some of my writing are included here to illustrate the variety of topical areas on which I’ve written, and the different depths of the writing. In some cases, the members of the target audience were well- versed in other aspects of biology and needed to be brought up to speed in the area of a new product launch. In other cases, the reps had little or no previous biological or medical knowledge. Some of the older pieces (the oldest was in 1987) show how much word processing has improved since then.
