Saunders tells FishbowlNY she’s
resuming her career as a health writer Correction: taking a job with Kaiser Family Foundation out in California. “In this new role I’ll get to work on public health campaigns with media outlets, so it’s a natural fit for me,” she said in an email. “Also, I’ve worked in mag publishing for about 10 yearsâ€”ever since I graduated college — and I’ve lived in the tri state area my entire life so I’m ready for new challenges on a number of levels.” She starts her new gig May 17.
The magazine is currently looking for a replacement, so dust off your resumes and butter up your references, readers.
