As a reporter for STAT, Eric Boodman‘s work has brought him into operating rooms and monkey labs, cattle auctions and desert refugee clinics. He got his start writing book reviews for the Montreal Gazette, and his pieces have since appeared in the TheAtlantic.com, Discover, and other publications. Eric’s narrative journalism has won a number of awards, including the American Society of Magazine Editors’ “Next” Award and the Evert Clark/Seth Payne Award for Young Science Journalists, both in 2017. His story, “Accidental Therapists” (featured on Showcase) was part of the winning package for the latter. Follow him on Twitter @EricBoodman.
