Deborah A. Whippen

Vice President and Principal Publications Manager

Deb has been at the forefront of medical publications and association management since 1985, when she began her career in the editorial office of The Journal of Clinical Investigation, before becoming the Managing Editor of the Journal of Clinical Oncology and subsequently the Senior Director and Executive Editor of the Publications Department at ASCO. She brings more than 40 years’ worth of expertise to every publication she helps develop and manage.

Deb is an enthusiastic user of new technology and routinely uses social media such as Twitter (@Editorial_ Rx) and Facebook to network within the health care, medical communication, and publishing communities. When she’s not playing with the latest electronic gadgets, Deb is needlepointing, a craft that has brought her bliss since she was a teenager. She’s a budding amateur filmmaker, earning two awards with her first entries in her community’s short film competition.

Teamwork

Teamwork

Lori and Deb work independently with different clients, but every once in a while, they pool their skills and knowledge to provide comprehensive services. For example, Lori has edited manuscripts in publications Deb is developing, and both Lori and Deb came to the rescue of a client who needed to outsource managing editing services for several months. The team regularly engages with graphic designers, editorial assistants, proofreaders, print managers, and other writers and editors to meet the needs of individual projects. The Editorial Rx, Inc., team in Florida also includes Grayson and Ellie, who lend support whenever they can.
