Lead Medical Writing
Episode 1: Lean Medical Writing

In this episode, Julia and Barry talk about the importance of lean medical writing to communicate the key messages efficiently. The goal is story, not storage. They discuss how less is more and the importance of giving answers to the questions posed by studies, rather than just spewing data. Lean writing is at the core of how to take aim at inefficient medical writing.
