EMWA social media team



Social media are instruments of two-way communication. Social media are not just sources of information but also ways of interacting. EMWA is currently using social media to interact with its members on a daily basis, to promote discussions, and share information.


Changes to the EMWA social media team

First, we would like to thank Leynna Prince, who has managed the EMWA LinkedIn discussion group for many years and has recently decided to step down. She has done a great job and we have all very much appreciated her commitment.

We also would like to welcome two new members of the team:

Maria Kołtowska-Häggström has recently taken over responsibility for the EMWA LinkedIn discussion group. Maria is a paediatrician and independent consultant affiliated with the Department of Women's and Children's Health at Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden and is the Medical Director at Proper Medical Writing, Warsaw, Poland. She has 22 years of experience at global senior positions in the pharmaceutical industry, both on the medical and marketing sides of the business. Maria has been a leading member of numerous research groups, which have produced more than 60 peer-reviewed publications.

Julianne Chaccour will be in charge of the EMWA Twitter account. Julie is a freelance medical writer currently based in Pamplona, Spain. She previously worked as a cell biologist and immunologist in Germany, the UK, and Venezuela.

We also want to thank Karin Eichele, who is in charge of the EMWA Facebook account. The Facebook page has gone from 300 followers in early May 2013 to almost 600 in November.

Finally, if you are not following EMWA on social media, we would like to invite you to join in, as it is a great way of staying in contact with EMWA colleagues, follow-up on interesting discussions, and staying up to date with EMWA news.
