Social Media Strategist
WEGO Health is a different kind of social media company – our mission is to empower the top contributors in health social media. We call these people Health Activists – they’re patients and caregivers who actively lead health communities online. Our business model involves fully transparent market research and social media promotion with these consumer opinion leaders on behalf of healthcare brands.
WEGO Health is headquartered in downtown Boston in the Leather District. We work hard, play hard, and believe in what we do.
