Julia Hong is an associate editor at Health. She edits evergreen condition articles and helps edit content following medical review.

Julia has worked in medical writing and also enjoys creative writing. Health journalism is where her interests merge. She has contributed to The Boston Globe, The Bay State Banner, Storybench, and The Scope: Boston.

I want to help translate complex science and health topics for anyone to understand. As health information is available to anyone looking for it online, my goal is to make sure Health's content is clear and accurate, backed by scientific research and expert guidelines.
