Jonathan S. Simmons



Jonathan S. Simmons, ELS

Senior Managing Editor


Jon plies 25+ years of experience in medical editing to ensuring the relevance, accuracy, and eloquence of everything that crosses his desk. His background in medical education is extensive and covers a wide range of therapeutic areas and formats, including live, online, mobile, and print (including several years with the Merck Manuals).

A graduate of Drew University with a BA in biology and writing (as well as lots of splinters from his time as a benchwarmer on the Drew baseball team), Jon is certified by the American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) and the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences (BELS).

After hours, Jon can be found in the stands at local (and some not-so-local) minor league or independent league baseball games, watching his daughter’s recitals/plays/track meets/equestrian competitions, or at his desk drawing cartoons.
