FBLA EXCLUSIVE: Getting Sick With Jonathan Cohn

sickcover.jpgJonathan Cohn has been hailed by Slate — in an E-Street inspired article — as the future of health care punditry. And today Cohn, a senior editor at The New Republic, will tell impressionable young health care journos how to write a book at a conference at Universal City Walk.

“It’ll be more about how not to write a book — or at least about how not to spend five years the way I did,” he told FBLA.

In true form, the self-described procrastinator is expected to see his book for the first time today — just in time for his talk.

The rest of us will have to wait until April 10 for Cohn’s Harper Collins tome, entitled, Sick: The Untold Story of America’s Health Care Crisis — And The People Who Pay The Price.
