You'll oversee the creation of a wide range of content that meets our readers' needs for information and support. This includes news coverage and analysis; topical overviews containing practical guidance; coverage of medical conferences and community events; op-eds and personal stories; in-depth features; and interviews with community and clinical leaders.

We need a person who possesses outstanding communication skills and values working closely with fellow members of a diverse team of extremely dedicated, social justice-minded individuals.
