New Study Says Common Anxiety Medications Like Xanax, Valium and...

I fell into writing about health shortly after grad school, where I realized I didn't want to work in a lab for the rest of my life!

As an undergraduate, I studied English Literature and Biopsychology at Vassar College, and got my PhD in Biopsychology and Behavioral Neuroscience at CUNY's Graduate Center in New York City, where I grew up and live now.
