Attack of the Bloodsuckers
In 2016, when Zika panic was at its height, I edited this Health package (written by Kate Rockwood) on mosquito- and tick-borne diseases, filled with useful nuggets of information like exactly how to remove a tick and why a box fan can be a great mosquito deterrent.
I conceived and directed this two-part series, published in Health in November and December 2010. The series earned writer Hallie Levine a 2011 Front Page Award from the Newswomen's Club of New York, and was a silver award winner in the 2011 Min Editorial & Design Awards.
