Who We Are
For over 20 years, I've been working in academia and the private sector as a writer and editor focusing on global health issues. Much of what I read is targeted to professionals in the field who are working on research, policy, and healthcare delivery issues. At WorldBuzz, I wanted to bring together stories that show a more human snapshot of what people may be dealing with in their own countries and cultures, and how these issues may all be directly or indirectly shaping overall health status.
I believe that "health" is holistically shaped by many variables - genes and heredity, environment, nutrition, physical and emotional well-being, spirituality and creativity - as well as access to medicine and healthcare. So I look for stories around the web that reflect these influences: the serious and the light, and the intriguing people, places and ideas from all parts of the world.
