Meet Our Contributors

No one understands what you’re going through with your health better than someone who has already walked in your shoes. Our HealthCentral community of patient advocates, medical experts, and professional health journalists helps you navigate the days, months, and years after diagnosis with answers to questions that can improve your quality of life. We believe that intimate, revealing personal stories can inspire positive, sometimes lifesaving health changes: at home, at the doctor’s office, at work, and in our communities. From autoimmune conditions to heart health, cancer survivorship to caregiving, we’ve been there, we’ve lived it, and we’re ready to help you.

We welcome personal stories, insights, and original reporting about life with chronic health conditions. Explore the conditions and topics that we cover, then introduce yourself at HealthCentralEditors@RemedyHealthMedia.com
