Publications

 

As a writer, I am best known for translating complex information into easily understood concepts and terminology for both online and print dissemination. Most recently, the examples cited in "Our Story" showcase this expertise. In addition, during my career in public health I have either written, edited, or given guidance and direction on the publications listed below in alphabetical order.
