Job Description


About us

CommunicateHealth is a growing health communication firm with a passion for health literacy and human-centered design. Our mission is simple: to improve lives by designing health information that’s easy to understand and use. By making health communications that are clear, accessible, and inclusive, we give people what they need to make informed decisions about their health — and ultimately help advance health equity. Together, our mission-driven team designs inspiring solutions that transform the way people think about health.

About you

You’re an experienced editor with a background in health communication or public health. You excel at editing health content to ensure it’s clear and actionable — and aligned with communication goals and objectives. You’re also a highly skilled copyeditor who polishes materials before they go out the door, making sure they’re accurate and aligned with relevant style guides. You provide constructive guidance to newer-in-career writers to help them improve their content, develop their skills, and grow in their careers. When you write materials yourself, you develop content that’s conversational, understandable, and accessible, and you’re adept at distilling complex information into engaging, approachable communications. You display outstanding critical thinking skills and attention to detail, and you’re well versed in plain and inclusive language best practices.

What you’ll do

The core functions of this role include:

  • Provide substantive edits to plain language health content on a variety of topics
  • Edit proposals, research reports, and other client-facing deliverables
  • Copyedit and proofread deliverables to ensure accuracy and alignment with style guides and other requirements
  • Mentor health writers and provide editorial feedback on their work
  • Reconcile feedback from clients and subject matter experts while maintaining plain language standards and editorial consistency across communication products
  • Support the team by writing print, web content, and proposals as needed


  • At least 5 years of relevant experience or an advanced degree
  • Bachelor’s or master’s degree in public health, health science, English, communication, or a related field
  • Strong writing and editing skills with a knack for clear communication
  • Demonstrated experience developing health education materials that incorporate best practices from human-centered design, health education, and health literacy
