What's the most inspiring part of your job?
"The best part about my job is having the opportunity to constantly explore new areas in health and science. I evaluate the evidence on a wide variety of topics and interview the top experts in their fields of study. And then I get to distill everything I learn into useful information for our readers. It's never boring, and I'm constantly learning."
