Irene M. Wielawski
I was a staff writer for 20 years at daily newspapers, including The Providence Journal and The Los Angeles Times, where I served on the investigations team. I now work independently as a writer and editor for a variety of publications, including peer-reviewed journals and books. I also consult on projects in journalism and U.S. health policy. I’m a founder and member of the Association of Health Care Journalists and a graduate of Vassar College.
