Getting Healthcare Right

Adam Burau

With more than 20 years of professional writing experience, Adam Burau worked as a newspaper reporter and editor and as a communications consultant for a major Pittsburgh health system before joining Highmark in 2003. Today, he’s a senior writer on Highmark’s multi-channel marketing team and focuses on writing and managing newsletters, web messaging and other important updates for the network physicians, hospitals and other health care providers who treat Highmark’s members.

Outside of work, Adam professes a love of everything outdoors — trees, trails, wildlife, mountains, rivers and beyond — and his passion is feature and essay writing that immerses readers in nature as a means of healing, adventure, introspection and camaraderie with kindred spirits, all while promoting resource conservation. He’s dabbled in outdoor writing — publishing articles in Pennsylvania-focused magazines and newspapers — and plans to expand those efforts as a creative outlet. When not working, spending time with his wife (to whom he also professes his love) or keeping their two Snowshoe cats from destroying the furniture (or each other), Adam can be found fly fishing local trout streams with friends or working in his garage woodshop in support of his wife’s growing craft business.
