As a newspaper staffer and later an MSN Daily Access columnist, I covered health topics from the anti-jetlag diet to the sequencing of the human genome. I now write regularly for various publications at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and was a keynote speaker for a University of Washington’s Med School fundraiser in spring 2019. Since early 2020, I’ve been a health and pharmaceutical stringer for The New York Times‘ T Brand Studio.
I enjoy writing about science, and daily wellness and fitness equally. Below are some favorite stories.
