My goal is to decipher scientific research that simplifies and informs and makes it actionable and relevant to the healthcare reader. Whether you're a parent or family member, a medical professional, or a policymaker, I want to inform you in the most understandable way of the current trends in medicine, public health issues, and healthcare.
