Angel Writers

Angels in Medicine is a volunteer site made possible by writers who devote their time and energy to tell Angel stories. They interview very busy people in medicine, research their organizations, gather photos, and put all this together into well-written, compelling articles -- and they do this without compensation, other than the satisfaction of sharing these stories with the world. It is their work and commitment that keeps this site flourishing.

Please contact these writers directly at the links below if you would like to hire them for a project.

Propsective writers, please send your resume and interests to harry@medangel.org.
