VIDEO: RINA SHAIKH-LESKO ON SCIENCE WRITING & EPIDEMIOLGY

How do you combine your passion for writing and science? We turned to Rina-Shaikh Lesko, who trained and worked as an epidemiologist for many years before embracing her passion for writing. She combined her twin interests: writing and science and became a science writer But, before becoming a science writer Shaikh-Lesko went back to school to study Science Communication from University of California Santa Cruz.

We sat down to speak with Shaikh-Lesko about how she developed an interest in science and writing and what drew her to become an epidemiologist. What prompted her to switch gears and embrace her love for writing.
