AMWA NorCal Chapter June 2, 2018, Presentation, Meeting, Networking, and Brunch

Please join us for a meeting of the Northern California (NorCal) Chapter of the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA), networking, brunch, and the presentation “Developing Resource Materials for Clinical Professionals” by Barbara Arnoldussen, RN, DBA.

Barbara will discuss aspects of writing self‑study and reference books, perhaps a little‑known opportunity for medical writers to use their skills, to include:

  • What self-study and reference books she has worked on and their audiences
  • How and by whom she is initially contacted and how she decides to accept or decline a project
  • What strategies are useful for completing these projects and what steps were involved in completing a specific project (as an example)
  • How writing self-study and reference books differs from writing journal articles


  • Cost: $35 (includes the brunch [buffet])
  • Number of tickets available: 40
  • Date: Saturday, June 2, 2018
  • Time: 10:15 AM to 2:00 PM
  • Location: Michaels at Shoreline, 2960 North Shoreline Boulevard, Mountain View, CA
  • Refunds: Available up to 7 days before the event

Please RSVP by purchasing a ticket on Eventbrite by 6 PM May 26, 2018.

Please contact Sandra Ruhl ( should you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
