Dan Wade Profile.jpg

Dan Wade

I am a digital media and communications expert with a particular focus on contemporary medical issues. Through great copy, expert interviews, and a collaborative editorial process, I believe organizations can generate key internal buy-in and position themselves externally in such a way that attracting talent, funds, and press interest becomes a far easier task.
