As a health journalist, I cover a range of topics: The heavy burden of infectious diseases on public health; research that's altering how we understand and treat chronic medical conditions; the innovations that prove the future of medicine is happening right now; the social determinants of health; and the science behind wellness.
I was a senior health writer at Newsweek, and have also held posts at CBS News, CNN and Everyday Health. More broadly, my writing has been featured in numerous national media outlets including the Wall Street Journal, newyorker.com, Elemental, TIME, New York Times, Marie Claire, Elle and Salon and others. I have made appearances as an expert on MSNBC, BBC News, Fox & Friends, NPR, as well as "The Dr. Oz Show." I've also worked as a senior editor at Union Square & Co., where I acquired and edited books in the categories of health and wellness, personal development and memoir.
