Medical journalist and editor with a medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine
I’m ecstatic to cover the newest in evidence-based and peer-reviewed research. I examine a wide range of pathology and compare new treatments with the current treatments and guidelines. I also focus on drug treatments that are topical or "in the news." As with all my medical writing, I center on the reader, and what the research means for you and your health. Of note, most news sources continuously rehash the same information; however, I try to cover very important findings in detail that is oftentimes overlooked by the mass media.
