Journalist Looking For Rural Health Workers [Sep. 4th, 2008|12:36 pm]
Physician Assistants of LJ
My name is Maggie Koerth-Baker. I'm a journalist working with American Profile magazine on a story about lung health, chronic lung disease, and outdoor air quality in small towns and rural areas. I saw that this community had "rural health" as an interest and thought you might be able to help.

I'm trying to find a healthcare worker (nurse, doctor, PA, or specialist) with experience in this area. Ideally, because part of what the magazine does is profiles, I'd like to find a healthcare worker who has some personal experience with lung health, either living in or growing up in a town plauged by chronic lung disease (like a mining community, for instance) or having dealt with lung health issues in their own family.

If you're interested or if you can point me in the direction who might be, please let me know. You can reach me by email at maggie (dot) koerth (at) gmail.com.

And many thanks!
