My personal rage, war, vendetta against healthcare
Media relations is about Associated Press

The dictionary describes being literate as able to read and write.

The social media site LinkedIn is suppose to facilitate professionals networking with other professionals. Same with Public Relations Society of America.


LinkedIn is full of alleged media relations experts using the term healthcare. In its 2009 program, PRSA listed,
Betsy Raymond Stevenson, founder and principal, RaymondStevenson Healthcare Communications.

I have said it over and over, there ain't no such word as healthcare. It is two words, health care. Shows those expensive communications professionals you're hiring, as well as listening to at professional conferences, are illiterate.


Again, I have said it over and over - Associated Press Stylebook must be the standard for communications professions; as well as a dictionary. Healthcare appears in neither.
