Kerry Dooley Young
I’m an experienced journalist whose enthusiasm for the health beat has only grown over time. My specialty is bringing added context and depth to stories written on tight deadlines, but I’m also interested in longer-term projects. My favorite assignments include reporting on research about efforts to improve the practice of medicine and to develop new drugs. I enjoy translating jargon into simple English. I’m also happy to dig into Medicare policies. (I joke that I’m fluent in CMS-ese.)
