Communication and Publishing

Mostly active in the fields of healthcare, medicine, environment and science, at Zadig we produce articles on these topics for the most important and popular Italian newspapers, as well as writing, editing and publishing journals, magazines and books about medicine and healthcare. Educational websites are also increasingly becoming one of our principal activities. At Zadig we aim to provide critical and correct information, free from any triumphalism or leap forward which too often are becoming common ingredients of this kind of divulgation.
