About Me

Auckland, New Zealand
My name is Deborah Johanson and I am a medical writer from Auckland, New Zealand. I deliver high-quality medical communication solutions across diverse content mediums; facilitating connection, conversation, and comprehension. My services include medical/health and scientific feature articles, website content, blogs, white papers, research summaries, literature reviews, and patient resources. Translating complex medical information into clear and engaging content is my speciality.
I have a Masters degree and PhD in health psychology and have been published in several peer-reviewed journals. I have presented my research nationally and internationally. My clinical experience as a registered nurse, work experience in health insurance and government organisations, as well as qualifications in health psychology, allow for a unique insight into the practical and psychological aspects of healthcare delivery and patient education.
