I’d start doing consumer freelance on the side and develop a body of work. Then get into one of those agencies that do both health and consumer work under one roof, like JWT. Their teams work on all of it, theoretically. Alternatively, join BBH, Interbrand, SapientRazorfish etc. which also don’t specialize but do health work...
