I'm an award winning Canadian journalist for nearly four decades. I’ve worked at six daily newspapers, and for 25 years, I was the medical/health issues reporter for The Vancouver Sun and other newspapers in Canada’s largest newspaper chain. My professional development has been assisted with numerous fellowships awarded by the Association of Health Care Journalists, New York Times Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and Knight Science Journalism. I’ve received training in various aspects of medical journalism at Columbia University (neuroscience), MIT (medical evidence and digital science journalism), Mount Sinai Medical Center (aging) and Dartmouth College medical school (Medicine in the Media).
I graduated from Ryerson University with a degree in journalism and attended Queen’s University law school on a one-year legal journalism fellowship from the Canadian Bar Association.
I’m the recipient of several prestigious journalism awards as well as two major grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, one for a series on patient navigators and another for a series that focused on knowledge translation as it pertains to fallopian tube removal to prevent ovarian cancer.
My goal for this website is to share valuable information that will help readers learn about health care, research and medical advancements.

A masterful work about domestic violence that should necessarily shift mindsets about necessary - and earlier - interventions. Thanks for this tour de force @jana_pruden and @globeandmail. And to Helen Naslund and family for disclosing so much.
I got special permission from the warden to drop off a copy of the newspaper to Helen Naslund in prison so she could see the story.
I’m very grateful the request got approved, because Helen has no internet access and the printout I mailed won’t arrive for several days.
