Carol Schadelbauer has had an extensive career in science and health public relations working for and consulting with nonprofit organizations with a focus on the fields of science, health and education. Carol leads strategic communications projects, campaigns and messaging, as well as directs media and presentation training for the company.

Her passion for helping medical professionals, researchers and leaders become effective advocates for their research and policy agendas with the public, policymakers and the media led to the formalization of training services at Burness. Carol and team continuously develop a variety of specialized media and policy trainings and seminars, working with organizations such as Duke University, Johns Hopkins Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, The National Institutes of Health (NIH), among others. Carol is an occasional lecturer on communications and advocacy at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore.

Carol’s prior experience includes leadership positions with the American Hospital Association, the National Academy of Sciences, the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, and Carnegie Mellon University.

She combined her love of science with her interest in writing and communications early on and ultimately landed happily in public interest communications at Burness.
