As a New York Times' science and health reporter, Pam Belluck has written about many different health-related subjects - fetal surgery, hospital delirium, Alzheimer's disease and the donation of HIV-infected organs. Next week, as part of the Stanford Health Policy Forum series, she'll discuss her work in a conversation with Paul Costello, chief communications officer at the medical school.
"Health Care in Practice: A Journalist's Perspective," will take place on March 20. A flyer (.pdf) for the free event offers more details.
Belluck joined the Times in 1995 as a general assignment reporter on the metropolitan desk, and she began covering health and science in 2009. She is also author of Island Practice, a book about an eccentric doctor and the adventures and challenges of his community on the island of Nantucket.
