American Medical News

American Medical NewsI joined American Medical News, “the newspaper for America’s physicians,” in 2005. I worked as a reporter covering medical ethics, health care quality and patient safety for the newspaper’s Professional Issues section.

Here is some general information about the newspaper, which was shut down in September 2013. Below, find a nearly complete archive of my work for the paper.

Note that the legacy website for the paper, amednews.com, is sometimes down. I am in the process of replacing these links to that site with my PDF copies of articles. If there is a particular article you are looking for, please request it by email.
