Introducing Columns & Contributors On Care City
We are creating space for columnists & contributors on Care City.
Columns are for guest writers who are experts or experienced in their respective fields of interest.
The columns bring a variety of voices on board while also helping columnists [and contributors] market what they are doing.
As a columnist;
You must have been consistently writing in your area or field of interest(s) for at least six months.
You must be an active writer who should have an online library/catalog of personal works; it may be a unique website, blog, newsletter, or social media page.
You should be ready to contribute at least one article a month.
Contributors may not be as active as columnists. They are not required or expected to always write about a particular subject(s), unlike columnists, who must stay on a line or domain of content.

Branding, Marketing & Community Building For Small and Medium Healthcare and Health-tech Companies & Start-ups
Building a company or start-up takes a lot of effort.
You have to attend to the creative aspects of things; give attention to team building; monitor your finances; make sure you are networking enough, and dedicate ample time to building your community.
That's a whole lot of work for small and medium enterprises. Many of them need help to effectively carry out these vital functions because they can't sustain the talents and expertise required to run them smoothly.
Evolve Health Media is a service arm of Care City dedicated to helping healthcare and health-tech brands with branding, marketing, and community building.
We discovered that healthcare and health-tech brands need help with these aspects of their businesses, so we have decided to step into the situation to help and work with them.
We are bringing our experience, exposure, and expertise in community building, marketing, and branding into the game, fusing it with our passion for seeing healthcare and health-tech brands [especially] in Africa grow to their full potential.
If you think we can work with you, kindly email us here: email@example.com. In that mail, you will let us know who you are and how you believe we can help and work with you.
We will schedule a call with your team; if it's something we are excited about, we will analyze your start-up/business/enterprise [you will answer some straightforward questions through a simple form].
When we have evaluated and identified what you need, we will cook a plan with you [and your team] and immediately get to work.
Here is a list of the primary services we will be offering:
Content Marketing, Copywriting & Storytelling

Recurrent CDI impacts an individual's quality of life and can also potentially be life-threatening. As the first FDA-approved fecal microbiota product, today's action represents an important milestone, as it provides an additional approved option to prevent recurrent CDI."

The country profiles incorporate facts indicating the national status of medical devices in areas such as: medical device policies, regulations, incorporation, lists, inventories, nomenclature, health technology assessment, management, and biomedical engineering resources. This publication is intended for use as a reference by decision-makers in Ministries of Health, nongovernmental organizations and academic institutions involved in health technology at the district, national, regional, or global levels. This publication has been in consultation during a period of 6 months in 2021 and 2022 and it is referred to in the World Health Assembly Report WHA75 /11 and addendum WHA75/11 Add.1 on standardization of medical devices nomenclature."
