[Job] Alzheimer’s Society, Information Officer, ??28.1 , clos 17 Dec 2010 #scicomm jobs #healthcomm

I can think of at least two other jobs from Alzheimer’s Society listed on this Posterous (which you can search for) to give you an idea of the sorts of jobs they offer. This one looks very interesting –

From the attached job description:

“To research, review and evidence the medical, health and social care information
published by Alzheimer???s Society, and to compile knowledge briefings for staff and

To provide information, guidance and training for staff and volunteers on medical,
health and social care provision for people affected by dementia.

To maintain a watching brief on developments in relevant legislation, policy and
guidelines and ensure the Society updates its information in a timely way.”

Looks very scicomm / healthcomm to me.
