Media perspectives: Dr Sarah Brewer

Hannah Blake interviews Dr Sarah Brewer

Your Wellness magazine

The aim of our media perspectives series is to speak with journalists in the healthcare and pharma fields on their thoughts about some of the biggest and craziest stories from over the years, along with a look at social media, and how the rise in different social media channels affects media today.

Our latest interview is with Dr Sarah Brewer, who began her career as a GP before moving into health communications and finally into her current position as Editor of Your Wellness magazine. Sarah explains this career progression in our interview, as she felt that as a doctor she was only able to send around twenty health messages a day, whereas as a journalist, she had the potential to share two million messages a day.
