When I was a kid I used to read kids' encyclopedias before bed. I was that nerd. I've always found the way our bodies work to be interesting. I took biology throughout high school because of that. I carried it through university until I had to make a call:

As I advanced in my journalism career I realized how separate people are from the science that arguably impacts them the most - their health.
