Jacqueline Gaulin is the digital media and communications specialist for Drossman Care/Drossman Center and is responsible for developing, advancing and executing an integrated communications strategy that includes creating compelling multimedia content packages and helping to engage physicians, patients and the media online through a variety of social network channels, including Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin.
Jacqueline has 20 years of combined experience in online media, journalism and media relations–particularly in the healthcare industry. She has spent the majority of her career in Washington, DC where she started out as a research assistant to the Chief Economist on the House Ways and Means Committee. As a reporter she covered health care reform during the Clinton Administration, business for The Washington Times and agency issues for The Federal Times. She transitioned from journalism to PR and corporate communications before diving into the online space at the beginning of the dot.com frenzy. As a student of the early stage start-up, she has had a role in building several online sites and communities from the ground up, including Revolution Health, where she created and managed the digestive health center and a large online community for patients.
Most recently she has worked with the American College of Gastroenterology, where along with traditional PR and media relations, she played a major role in bringing the ACG into the digital age by developing, advancing and executing the College’s digital communications strategy, which included an online community for its 12,000 physician members as well as Twitter and Facebook. During her tenure at ACG, she advocated for and played a key role in the development and 2011 launch of ACG patient site.
Jacqueline is a certified health counselor through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and a member of American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP). She received a Master of Arts in Creative Writing from Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a Philosophy minor from Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts.
