Reviving Public Health Science Communication 2.0 and welcoming its name sister

It has been 3 years since the last post. Time flies, but lots have happened: children have been born, home has switch to another country and a new company has emerged on the world stage… But it is due time for Public Health Science Communication 2. to have a revival!

After having completed several freelance assignments related to public health and science communication and seeing the potential for more to arise, I decided to take the leap and create my own consultancy company offering to complete tasks in the field of public health science communication.  The name of the company is simply: Public Health Science Communication.

The company  is still in its infancy and I’m not sure exactly where it is heading, but its exciting to have taken the leap. I have even completed af business start-up course (BIZ) offered by the Danish Union for Journalists and am in the process of ordering business cards!

I have already been busy teaching science communication to ph.d. students at University of Copenhagen; preparing a training on using social media in public health; helping a Danish patient organisation rewrite a scientific evaluation report; putting together meeting reports from international TB and HIV meetings and assisting university departments in communicating online who they are and what they do. I hope to expand the list and am enjoying the diversity of my work.

The revival of this blog will hopefully fit nicely with my new little consultancy company. Being almost a name sister, my thought is that Public Health Science Communication 2.0 can be a 2.0 side kick to my company, where I can continue to share thoughts and reflection also on topics that related to my assignments.

I look forward to your comments and am of course also happy to hear from you if there is anything you think I can be of help with. Just send an email to ninabjerglund@gmail.com.

See you soon in another blog post!
