July has been a busy month for the Spectrum team, and (while we are not ones to brag) we have a lot to show for our efforts. Here are a few highlights of some of the great things happening around the office:
Our very own Liz Bryan was nominated for the 2012 Washington Women in Public Relations (WWPR) Emerging Leaders Awards. This prestigious award honors those up-and-coming women in communications whose talents have made a significant impact on the industry.
Resident science expert, Cynthia Chen, was featured in a Naturejobs story about alternative career paths for those with high science degrees. In the article, Cynthia talks about her day-to-day at Spectrum, her background and how she transitioned to health science communications.
Spectrum’s fearless leader, John J. Seng, co-authored an article published in commPRO.biz. John’s co-author, friend and fellow independent firm owner Louise Pollock of Pollock Communications crafted a top five list debunking the myths of giant PR firms and highlighted the advantages of working with smaller, independent agencies.
Lastly, over in the Spectrum blogosphere, the team has been covering the latest in life science news. This past week’s hot topics include pharmaceutical regulations, nutrition food facts and a new development in infectious disease via HIV/AIDS.
Check back next week as Spectrum Digital Account Executive Ricki McCarroll (@RickiMac) live blogs and tweets from the XIX International AIDS Conference.
