Brian Mastroianni Journalist

Brian Mastroianni



Brown University, Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism



I've always been fascinated by people's stories. It's been a privilege getting to share these narratives as well as educate readers about health issues that affect us all. I aim to continue to spread awareness about inequities in our health systems and what research is out there to solve some of our biggest health problems domestically and around the world.
