Most of my editing in the health field has been for HealthLeaders, an information services company that provides market analyses of service provider sectors in state and metropolitan areas. The content typically is dense with statistics about hospital beds, pharmaceutical costs, and any other factors that would change the balance of medical power within a given geographic area. The material requires strict attention to detail and surgical editing skills.
