About Andrew Van Dam

Andrew Van Dam of The Wall Street Journal previously worked at the AHCJ offices while earning his master’s degree at the Missouri School of Journalism, and he has blogged for Covering Health ever since.

AHCJ member Kirsten Goldberg is stepping down as editor and publisher of The Cancer Letter, a position she’s held since taking her father’s place at the helm 20 years ago. Goldberg is headed to the American Society of Clinical Oncology, where she will become, according to the release, “a senior program manager in the Communications and Patient Information Department, focusing on policy communications.”

She has been replaced by Paul Goldberg, a fellow AHCJ member who first worked with the publication in 1986. He has worked there full time since 1992.

The Cancer Letter is an independent publication that covers oncology, drug development and cancer research. It was founded by Jerry Boyd in 1973 and has remained in the family.
