AWARD-WINNING Medical Journalist

Freelance journalist Laura Beil awarded 2018 Victor Cohn Prize for Medical Science Reporting

Welcome

I love working at the intersection of science, medicine and journalism. I have more than 20 years of experience in health and science writing. I was a finalist for a National Magazine Award in 2015, and have received top awards from the Association of Health Care Journalists and the American Society of Journalists and Authors. While I specialize in matters of health and science, I have also written about gun-toting liberals for D Magazine, and was the writer-reporter of the “Thugs” episode for the NPR series This American Life.

You can read some of my articles below. I welcome new story ideas.
