The piece covers Hensley’s transition from the medical device industry to the media, his rise through the ranks and his attitude toward blog post topic selection.

In addition to the usual channels, Covering Health readers will remember Hensley from his distinguished run of contributions here, between his stints at the WSJ and NPR.
