Sarah Chen

Sarah leads the global medical team at Publicis Health France, one of the best, most creative group of people you could ever hope to work with. She started out her career in the clinical research world, between the University of North Carolina & Johns Hopkins, mostly running studies up and down the gastrointestinal tract.

More than 15 years ago she made the leap to healthcare communications, and somewhere in the middle, she also became French. She’s worked in a few healthcare agencies, including Havas Health and TBWA before calling Publicis Health France her home.

Science and medicine were always a source of wonder, and it only made sense to her to address issues of engagement and unmet needs with creativity. She’s always looking to push the boundaries of healthcare advertising to make real impact that changes lives. Even while firmly rooted on the medical scientific side, she’s managed to encrust herself in the creative process, winning some awards along the way.

Sarah originates from a mid-sized, industrial town in Wisconsin and is happy to now call Paris her city alongside her husband and 3 energetic kids.
