Medical editor Frederick Feldman puts his scholarly skills to the task at AlphaGroup and in academiaJuly 21, 2022
A published writer and award-winning researcher, Frederick Feldman offers his editorial expertise and writing prowess to support AlphaGroup’s team of PhD scientists, MDs, PharmDs, nurses, designers, and communications experts. His editorial proficiency helps the company to deliver the highest-quality scientific, medical affairs, and outcomes communication services worldwide.
“Editorial work requires deep concentration and independent work, so I greatly appreciate the flexibility at AlphaGroup,” said Fred, an AlphaGroup Medical Editor. “As a result, I’m able to tailor my workspace to be as productive and focused as possible. My manager is very supportive, and I’m part of a team of editors who are dedicated and fun to work with.”
Fred’s daily responsibilities include editing manuscripts, abstracts, slide decks, posters, contact reports, status sheets, and other projects for grammar, punctuation, consistency, and style. He also helps manage deadlines and workloads for the editorial department through ongoing communications with other departments. Fred excels at editing on tight deadlines and complicated topics and has the flexibility and focus to deliver expert-level materials.
Before joining AlphaGroup, Fred was a freelance editor for a range of clients, including Johns Hopkins University Press journals. He was a graduate assistant for College Literature at West Chester University as well as he was a co-winner of the University’s “Excellence in Teaching with Technology” award for developing MBA curriculum material with a faculty member in the Department of Business and Public Management. On the editorial staff, Fred worked on an award-winning academic journal and trained interns and new graduate assistants on journal protocols, copy-editing procedures, and other educational materials he helped create.
Fred’s academic experience was instrumental in AlphaGroup’s recent mentorship program, for which he designed lessons in literature reviews for two participating high school students.
“Being a part of the mentorship program was terrific,” he said. “I really enjoyed the opportunity of leading the lesson and working with two remarkable high school students. I think the program was a wonderful idea, and I’m proud of the TIDE committee for creating and implementing it.”
Fred’s academic studies and graduate work are integral to his writing projects. He was published in 2021 for a book review of “The Novel and the New Ethics,” by Dorothy J. Hale. He is currently continuing to research the areas he studied in his graduate program so as to turn chapters from his thesis into academic journal articles. He is focusing on two American novels in the context of “the novel of human rights,” highlighting how the theme of confession appears in these works. To this end, he is in the middle of a deep dive into the late works of Michel Foucault, studying his ideas about “technologies of the self.”
Fred received his Master of Arts Degree in English from West Chester University, West Chester, PA; and his Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Thomas Edison State University, Trenton, NJ.
