Michelle Fay Cortez has covered science and medicine for Bloomberg News since 1992, tracking advances in health care for more than a quarter century. She hosts the Prognosis podcast about people living on the edge of medical innovation. She writes about complex conditions that have stymied and invigorated scientists for decades, as well as the companies, regulators and researchers that ultimately come together to offer novel therapies. Her primary area of interest is medical technology and innovation, including how digital health is upending science and medicine, ushering in a new interconnected world, and offering unique challenges and opportunities. After starting with Bloomberg in Washington, D.C., she has been based everywhere from an island in the Puget Sound to London. She currently lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with her husband and family.
