Highlights

Health science and health care changes so rapidly and a lot of the information is buried in medical journals and difficult to decipher. That’s why I’m so excited to be part of Verywell and its mission of bringing reliable, practical, and up-to-date health information to the public. My work on the Verywell Review Board is independent from my duties at the University of Washington.
