What Else Have I Written?
I have many additional clips from the years I was a staff reporter at The Desert Sun in Palm Springs, California. During that time, I wrote both regular news stories and major feature stories for enterprise packages on topics such as the future of gifted-and-talented education in the No Child Left Behind era, risky behaviors in teenagers and standardized testing woes in Southern California schools.
Health and medicine articles
I also have written numerous health care articles for a variety of publications, hitting on topics such as diabetes management in young children, the landmark health reform law known as the Affordable Care Act, patient-physician relationships, and healthy eating on the road.
