Fittingly, my first piece for Vox was about Dr. Oz, this time looking at why he is allowed to keep his medical license given that his sins against science have even drawn the attention of U.S. Senators. Related to this news, I did interviews with CBC’s The Current and America Weekend with Paul Harris.
I’m elated to share some good news: I’ll be heading to Vox to work as a health reporter. Vox is a new media start-up with a mission I firmly believe in: explaining the news. Their emphasis on context overlapped very neatly with the work I was doing at Science-ish, and I’m eager to figure out new ways to better cover medicine, public health and health research while there.
