Come and meet Rachel Moss, Reporter, HuffPost UK
, who will be speaking at our next Journalist Briefing, 9-11am, on Wednesday 31st October.
Please note, this event is free to HCA members. However, as places are limited, we may have to limit the number of individuals attending from any one organisation if this event becomes oversubscribed.
Rachel has worked at HuffPost UK
for almost five years, covering Health alongside a vast array of topics for the site's Lifestyle section.
As well as reporting breaking health news, delivering the latest medical breakthroughs to readers in easy-to-digest formats, she covers longer lead health features with people at the heart, speaking to those affected by illness, plus those campaigning for improvements in treatment. A typical week could start with news on a new migraine drug, continue with a feature on access to emergency contraception, then end speaking to cancer patients about their personal experiences of treatment.
Rachel has been a leading voice in reporting the vaginal mesh scandal, interviewing MPs, campaigners and those who've suffered life-changing complications, also exposing under-reported side effects of hernia mesh. Alongside such exclusives, she produces evergreen articles explaining the signs and symptoms of illnesses and what readers may expect from treatment.
Mental health remains a prominent element of HuffPost UK's health coverage and is an area Rachel is personally passionate about. She was part of HuffPost's agenda-setting mental health campaign Young Minds Matter, which was guest edited by HRH The Duchess of Cambridge in 2016.
