Stephanie Yacoubian

Which team do you work in?

I am part of the Healthcare Communications team.

Which area do you specialise in?

Medical Communications and Medical Education

How do you keep up-to-date with the issues in your sector?

It's important to be active online, regularly monitoring BBC Health, PMLive and networking websites. I like to be up-to-date with the latest in the industry and relay relevant information where it's needed. I am naturally inquisitive so I like to keep myself busy and ensure I am an expert in my market so I can deliver to the best of my ability and generate happy results! 

What's your favourite film and why?
I am a big fan of Leonardo Dicaprio, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt, Jared Leto.. Oh sorry I am meant to be talking about a specific film aren’t I? I love Fight Club, old time favourite.. I love it when a film shocks you with a twist and leaves you thinking about what just happened for a little while after!

If you could invent one thing what would it be?
I’d invent a special habitable artificial satellite that would allow civilians to take a trip in low earth orbit. Imagine having the opportunity to travel around the earth in 90 minutes (like being in the ISS) and see the most spectacular sights.… Ahh maybe one day

What makes you #DistinctlyDifferent?
I love learning about cosmology and astrophysics, I have some fascinating books by Carl Sagan, Brian Cox & Michio Kaku, there are a lot of things I struggle to get my head around but I could talk for hours about space…
