Public Health Reporting

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, I’ve been reporting on it. But beyond breaking coronavirus news, I’ve written unique, human interest stories centered around public health that have had impact.
At a time when health workers were in dire need of protective equipment, a story I reported on a patchwork army of PPE printers resulted in a donation of raw plastic sheeting that enabled researchers to produce 50,000 additional face shields. I’ve also reported on death doulas, sex education, and mental health.
