Getting Healthcare Right

Joe Deemer

Joe Deemer

I’ve been involved in publishing for more than 15 years (longer if being a paperboy counts). I initially worked as a sports writer for The Indiana Gazette, covering everything from a local arm wrestling competition to Super Bowl XL. I moved to Pittsburgh in 2005 and joined the publications department of Printing Industries of America, where I helped plan and craft magazine, textbook, and marketing projects. I joined Highmark as a content strategist and currently serve as a copy editor.

I live in the north hills of Pittsburgh with my wife (Jen) and two boys (Paul and Henry). I enjoy watching and playing hockey, home brewing, geocaching, golf, lifting weights, reading, cooking, and napping on the bus.
