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.
