Laurie’s Health Blog

Welcome to my health blog, a running log of my published articles, blog posts, and my thoughts on all things health. This will be a compilation of quick newsy posts I write for iVillage Parenting and iVillage Health as well as longer feature articles for the New York Times and magazines like Prevention, Health, Parenting, Fit Pregnancy and the web magazine ViV. I’ve been a health reporter for nearly two decades, and got my start at Self magazine as an editorial assistant. I’ve written about health, diet, nutrition, fitness and mental health, but my favorite types of articles are those that have a consumer edge to them, articles that help keep health consumers informed so that they can make the best health care decisions for themselves. Thanks for your support!
