My passion for science and research has led me to a career in healthcare-focused communications. Below are links to some of my work in this area:
The Diabetes Canada Podcast
I host and produce the Diabetes Canada Podcast. Get updates on the latest diabetes research, hear stories from those living with the disease, and find out what you can do to make a difference.
Diabetes: From Beta Cells to Bicycles Podcast
I hosted and produced this podcast mini-series with the BC Diabetes Research Network. It highlights six of the researchers in their network and the ways they are supporting better health for everyone with diabetes in British Columbia and across the country.
On Medium, you can find my personal musings on all things science, chronic illness and more.
