I've been producing consumer health content since 1996. Much of my health writing is tailored to specific audiences, such as people with arthritis or women with heart disease. My articles have been published in magazines (Arthritis Today, Ladies' Home Journal, Lupus Now, Modern Maturity, et al.), websites (Healthanswers.com, MSNBC.com, WebMD, et al.), and other mediums. Here are a few online samples:
An in-depth feature on the link between heart disease and lupus.
Another feature on the link between stress and autoimmunity.
Here's one on women and cholesterol.
I write lighter stuff, too (honest). Here's a lighter spicey piece that was in Ladies' Home Journal.
What do I most enjoy about this kind of work? I love interviewing researchers and sharing the passion they have for medical advances that may offer patients more hope and treatment options. I also love being able to translate the medical jargon into digestible nuggets for people who might not have Stedman's Medical Dictionary at arm's reach (like I do).
